Odd Display Bug?

Anyone else see a weird display bug with this comment? In both IE and Firefox, the "posted by" line (and only the posted by line) for that comment (and only that comment) is not indented at all. I'm not familiar with the Metafilter code, but when I view source it looks like all the rest of the comments.

Change double hyphen to dash.

Feel free to put me in my place if this is way too trivial an issue, but I've been posting more recently and can't help but notice the little tip below the posting box, and—I know this is trivial, sorry—can we replace the two hyphens with a dash? kthx.

My Comments have an unclosed tag

My "My Comments" page cut off one of my long comments that used a "small" tag, and now everything on that page is in small text. Help?

uppercase html bugs

Uppercase HTML TITLE text in anchor tags gets converted to lowercase (I think via previewing a post). Seen here on AskMe. Also seems to be buggy on MeFi. [MI]

I'm not seeing the usual buttons under the comment fields. Bold, Italic, Link, et cetera. Is there upkeep/pony-development going on?

Img tags displaying

On the front page of AskMe, the img tags in swlabr's post show up as text...but inside, the links are fixed to href tags. Oh, and I'm on Safari 2.0.3.

A problem with the new headers

A problem with the new headers: When I tab through links to "MetaTalk," in the upper-right corner, the browser puts a dotted border around the link. This border makes the page 1px too wide, and I get a horizontal scrollbar. This also happens for a second after I click on the link but before the MetaTalk page loads. FireFox 1.5 RC3 on Windows.

Somewhere around here it appears a closing tag is needed.

HTML and CSS cleanup in aisle 40502

Spell with flickr = screwed up thread. HTML and CSS cleanup in aisle 40502, please. (Somehow the font is stuck small, the margin is borked, and I can't even figure out why. Nothing major, but it needs fixin'.)

The use of small tags in front page posts bothers me

The use of small tags in front page posts bothers me. If something is worth saying, it's worth saying properly. A lot of the time it is used for unnecessary commentary about the post itself. Don't! Other times it's used to lessen the impact of a longer post on the front page, but preserving front page space by simultaneously posting less useful content seems like backwards logic to me. In preferences, I've set my small font size the same as my general font size, but it doesn't work.

there is currently a vertical gap on the front page

With the sideblog open, there is currently a vertical gap on the front page running the entire vertical distance between the last line of the description in the "Today some of us thought it..." post, and the line with Miguel Cardoso line. The gap disappears in the sideblog is closed. This is in my Mozilla for PC.

are we no longer allowed to use font tags in comments?

Speaking of fonts -- are we no longer allowed to use font tags in comments? Mine seem to be getting stripped out during preview. This interferes with my ability to make [font size=-2]snarky side comments[/font].

div v h2

Is there a reason you use <div class="monthday">September 28</div> instead of, e.g., <h2 class="monthday">September 28</h2>? I don’t know about everyone else, but I’d greatly appreciate a switch to the latter.

It didn't do this yesterday.

Putting HTML tags in a post works in preview, but not in the actual post

I wanted an HTML tag to appear in my post, so I typed ampersand-lt-semicolon and ampersand-gt-semicolon for the karats. Looked fine in preview, but they got converted to karats -- and therefore invisible comments -- for the post.
