Go to http://www.united.com/ - note odd box at the bottom of the page. If you make the page wider, this stays left justified. Not sure if this is a regression, but it does not appear in Firefox. Tested with r28979 on 10.5.1

screenshot showing oddity on bottom left
Confirmed with Safari 3.0.4 (523.12.2) with original WebKit on Mac OS X 10.4.11 (8S165). Also occurs with a local debug build of WebKit r29032.
Its a <div id="tooltip">, present in Firefox as well but in WebKit it has style="" whereas in Firefox it has style="display: none".
I've been able to reduce this to something related to their use of a jQuery tooltip. It's very odd; just having the tooltip style declared and initializing the Tooltip causes the the box to appear. Removing the initialization will also remove the box. I'm attaching the reduction.
Forgot to note: Tested on r30028, on Mac OS X 10.5.1.

Reduction for bug number 16671
While creating a reduction I found this in the changelog for the tooltip plugin utilized in the current reduction:
* Fixed bug in Safari 3 where to tooltip is initially visible, by first appending to DOM then hiding it"
So, the plugin author fixed this bug in a later release than what's being used on united.com. Do we want to further explore this bug?
It's definitely Evangelism bug since changing user agent to Firefox fixes the problem.
As I tested today the bottom box isn't visible on the page any more. Tested with Webkit r35203.
It's definitely still there with r35203 on Mac. What platform did you test on?

It's strange bug as I tested the site yesterday and also today on my Mac Mini the box isn't visible (screenshot attached). But it's visible on my other machine - Macbook. Strange.
Seems to be fixed now.
