Is the front page shrinking? (more..)

I posted in this thread and closed the small tag. But had scrolled down a bit further and noticed many more unclosed small tags that make the text almost unreadable by the end of the page. I am using *cough* Netscape 6.1 *cough* since I'm running BSD. Is anyone else seeing the same thing? (feeling like a little kid with a tall tale...Netscape's probably to blame)

No, you're just growing.

I don't know, I noticed the unclosed small tag on the front page, but I don't see the tiny text. Sorry.

nprigoda, it only shows up in Mozilla. It appears that in IE, when the <div class="comments"> tag, which specifies a font-size, is reapplied for the next comment, it overrides the <small> tag, while in Mozilla, it does not.

You're welcome. Now if some real web jockey can either a) come up with a CSS workaround or b) tell me whose bug this is so I can report it. Maybe I should fire up Opera so we can play best-2-out-of-3.
