    There is a slight niggle in the background surrounding the Welcome <username> block in the upper right-hand corner of the login webpage for TSG at the Forums link (http://forums.techguy.org/) vs any subforum link which does not have a problem.

    My two attachments illustrate the problem (niggle). In the Forums link after I login you can see the value 20 which is not enclosed by the background shading.

    When I move to any subforum, the problem does not exist as illustrated by the second attachment.

    Hi TechGuy,

    I was surprised by the reply given all of the problems with server 1 lately.

    My OS is Windows XP Pro SP2 up-to-date and my browser is Firefox 1.5.

    Should be fixed -- the problem was actually that "Yesterday" was longer than "Today" and caused it to wrap down to the next line. Let me know if you notice it again, and take another screenshot. Thanks!

    To me it looks like the problem is actually his text being enlarged by his browser.

    Hi -MaDcOW-

    Here are my settings:

    My Fonts and Colors are set as:
    Times New Roman
    Size: 14

    Advanced:
    Proportional: Serif
    Serif: Times New Roman Size: 14
    Sans-serif: Arial
    Monospace: Courier New Size: 14
    Display resolution: 96 dpi
    Minimum font size: 12:

    Checked: Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above

    Character Encoding:
    Default Character Encoding: Western (ISO-8859-1)

    I suppose I would agree with you if the block to Allow pages to choose their own fonts (and I presume sizes - could be wrong on this) were not checked, but it is. What do you suppose the difference is?
