It's the question identifier that differs, could this be it? 5117, 93835. If not, then it's something much more subtle, or, I'm stupid and blind. And there's a straggling o in a couple of the revisions... I feel like I'm overlooking the actual problem here... – Grant Thomas Aug 25 '11 at 14:58
@Mrd, Yes, I hadn't noticed the different number, that would be another problem, but I'm referring to the til- that's missing on the end of the first line. – Lance Roberts Aug 25 '11 at 15:09
@MrD it's different because the user who edited forgot to edit the actual link, he just edited the description. I fixed that now.. – Shadow Wizard Aug 25 '11 at 15:24
I'm still too blind to see the problem here. And I have my glasses on. – Matt Aug 25 '11 at 15:25
@Matt, look at the end of the first colored line on each side. – Lance Roberts Aug 25 '11 at 15:40
@kiamlaluno, thanks, great edit. – Lance Roberts Aug 25 '11 at 17:07
I repro this in IE 9, but not in Chrome. So it looks to be browser-specific. Are you seeing it in IE 9 as well? – Cody Gray Aug 26 '11 at 3:56
@Cody, Yep, IE9. – Lance Roberts Aug 26 '11 at 7:07
Is still an issue? – Oded Aug 8 '13 at 11:12
