Looks fine to me, but my browser setup is what one might reasonably term "uncommon."

weird - it was fine yesterday. i'm on IE6, w2k, nothing forced (font settings) in the browser. i just tried clearing my cache/cookies, but to no avail.

ok, it's happening to me in opera 6 and netscape 4.7 too.

majick: by uncommon, do you mean you override font settings or use your own css?

Modge: I'm on IE6, w2k (nothing else customized) and everything looks fine.

By "uncommon," I mean a bit more than that: not only do I use Mozilla with no caching, which breaks in ways entirely different from how other browsers break, but also that before a page is rendered, it passes through a Squid caching proxy with light filtering, a Junkbuster filtering and light anonymization proxy, and a Proxomitron which is configured to alter the contents of the page under certain circumstances and do all kinds of evil header things.

CSS, layout, and font stuff passes through mostly unharmed although text sizes too small or large for reading get altered as well as both iframes and embeds get yanked. I don't override a page's style setting so much as remove bits of it that will bother me.

In light of all this, it's entirely possible something on a page is broken and I don't see it. Typically a page either looks just fine to me or is broken beyond readability by my aggressive mediation of the web experience.

IE6/XP, looks fine to me.

maybe you are leaning.

I think Chef meant to say,

maybe you are leaning.

(The front page looks fine to me, too -- IE 5.1/OS X.1)

Perhaps you live near a sink hole?
