I apologize to the list for the tedious detail, but has anyone else seen similar displays when visiting this page?

The four times I've visited this page, at least two of the lines of symbols were overwritten: the line between "definite integral, from 1 to 1" and "definite integral, from 2 to 2" evaluates a definite integral; the end of this line is overwritten with the equation "g(1) = 0.881 . . .". The line between "Derivative of hyperbolic cosine" and "Generic arc length function" is overwritten with blue text in a sansserif font: "equation of semicircle of radius R and derivative".
If I "restore" the browser (Netscape 4.76 under Win98SE) to occupy only part of the screen, and then "maximize" to a fullscreen display, the overwriting text becomes the first two lines of the page. (The blue font changes to Times New Roman.)
Has anyone else seen something similar visiting this page, or is it just me (and my browser)?
