In a catalog homepage, items rendered in categories have their icon displayed to the left of the description of the item. These icons may be larger than the description, causing the text to display starting at the top of the image. In IE11 the opposite result is observed: the text comes from the bottom of the image.
Steps to Reproduce
1. Modify a catalog item so that it has a large icon (i.e. 202 x 249 image).
2. Add the category to catalog_home.do.
3. Open catalog_home.do in both IE11 and any other browser (including Edge).
Observe the catalog homepage does not render identically in both browsers. The text for the item modified displays in a different location relative to the item image in IE11.

As a workaround, set the system property glide.sc.cat_view_use_popup_for_details to false.
