How does “Reputation” work?

On my "reputation" page I see this:

+25      42 secs ago    5 votes  How do I add a button beside each node of a TreeView?

5 votes, +25? That does not compute. So I click to expand, and this is what I see:

             20:13  upvote   
             20:08  upvote   
+5           20:06  upvote   
+10          20:05  upvote   
+10          20:05  upvote   

Half upvotes? And blank upvotes? Huh?

On the question page it says that I have 5 upvotes.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Look into the rep cap. You can earn +200 from upvotes in a given day, the +15 for accepted answers and +X from bounties do not count towards the cap. Every upvote after 200 rep is donated to the screen actors guild. – Anthony Pegram Dec 29 '11 at 20:19
@AnthonyPegram Oh, okay, thank you, and sorry for bothering you about this. Should I delete this question? – Mike Nakis Dec 29 '11 at 20:20
From what I've found though, he's only at 192 reputation for the day (+45 for accepts)... Can someone check my calculations? – animuson Dec 29 '11 at 20:22
Yes, I downvoted a few today, but not 8. – Mike Nakis Dec 29 '11 at 20:25

Today, you have received 237 reputation. Your reputation gain minus approved edits and accepted answers is 237 - 12 - 45 = 180 (= reputation from upvotes).

The daily reputation cap from upvotes only is 200. You have probably deleted a question/answer, causing the reputation mutation to be invisible at the Reputation page.

Visit http://stackoverflow.com/reputation, and scroll to the bottom to see today's calculations.

Don't edits still count towards the reputation cap? – animuson Dec 29 '11 at 20:40
@animuson The reputation cap is only affected by upvotes. – Rob W Dec 29 '11 at 20:44
I'm not sure about that; a few days ago we had a "serial minor editor" who had hundreds of edits, but was capped at 200 rep from them. – Andrew Barber Dec 29 '11 at 20:46
