Just noticed it does it here to, and now I wonder if it happens on the Blue and I just never noticed.

I dunno if I'd actually call that "broken". Just looks like the column is too narrow to have "post as:" on one line if you're running at low resolution. I imagine it looks even worse on 640x480. I'd call it an esthetic compromise more than a bug.

yeah, i wouldn't call it broken, more of a resolution thing. but after looking at the source, i've noticed that my username and password is available.

Yes, the login info being in the source confuses me a bit too. There's already a cookie set for *, so why have it in the page source too? Not much harm in it I guess, though some people are more paranoid about their browser cache than their cookies.

Yeah, the user/pass stuff is lazy programming from years ago that I need to clean up.

I'll fix the word wrapping too.

Isn't this more an issue of the text size setting in IE that is causing the problem, rather than the page itself? Looking at the screenshot, the text looks very big.
