Care to provide a screenshot? I tested the above page in Mozilla-1.0.2, 
1.1, 1.2.1, 1.3.1, 1.4.1 and 1.5. All displayed it as in this screenshot:

Netscape-6.2.3 is still based on the really old mozilla-0.9.4, I'm not 
sure if I should work around bugs present in a release that old...
If you're geek enough to use Mozilla or Netscape, at least upgrade to 
the latest version ;-)

The following is the best display you can get:

Konqueror-3.12 and CVS have horrible bugs with the floats; the 
navigation on the right also has a tendency to disappear. Opera 7 
displays it just like the Mozilla's, but Internet Explorer 6 is even 
worse then Konqueror, it doesn't want to push the changelog below the 
other news but insists on placing it right next to them.
