sorry, more info. It sits at the top of the page when initially downloaded and then when i move
my mouse over it it jumps to the left hand side of the screen.

Articles are:

Both look fine with firefox 1.04, screenshots seems to be taken
from an Internet Explorer browser.

As both "bugs" are due to user content, please either:
_ fix them by editing the template
_ ask the templates creators to fix their template for Internet Explorer

Closing as 'invalid', cause there is nothing we can do
in MediaWiki source code for this :(

Well obviously *everyone* doesn't use bleeding Firefox, and this has nothing
to do with a template because it doesn't involve templates.

The el cajon article includes:
[[template:Cities of San Diego County, California]]
The table is correctly placed above the category link but for
an unknown reason the image is moved out of the html table.
Might be because of the "margin:0" style applied to the table.

The other article uses:
[[template:Spoken Wikipedia]].
In that one a link is put with a "top:3.2em;" style that's incorrectly
handled by internet explorer. The style should be fixed to works with

In conclusion, this as nothing to do with mediawiki code but is a
HTML / internet explorer trouble and there is nothing we can do to
patch this issue.
