Main content

Steps to reproduce: with mouse-dragging, select/highlight the word "Main" above and then, with the mouse button still down, pressed, gently move the mouse cursor down, toward bottom of page.

Actual results in MSIE 8 beta 1: the "Main content" words move down, move vertically, shift down and the whole light green content box becomes taller. Some kind of guillotine graphical effect occurs, is possible. [Image download support must be enabled]

Expected results: the "Main content" words should remain still, should not move vertically, should not shift up or down. The whole light green content box should not become taller.
