In light of bobince getting 1000+ votes for his minor HTML/regexp conniption, I do believe his answer has escaped the confinement of its box. Everyone run for your lives!

Quoth the Taco Bell dog : "Uh Oh, I think I need a bigger box!" –  Tim Post Nov 16 '09 at 17:35

Anyway, I don't see a problem in IE7. (Hey, I don't get to say that often!) –  mmyers Nov 16 '09 at 17:39

For reference, the screenshot was taken in Firefox 3.5.5 –  Andrew Keeton Nov 16 '09 at 17:43

making the box bigger was not even one of the suggestions! Unless you count the Taco Bell dog... –  beggs Nov 20 '09 at 6:43

If the font-size is changed to 70% it looks fine too:

Is that a challenge to a free-handed-circle duel? –  Andrew Keeton Nov 16 '09 at 17:44
    
Ha, it's more a "freehand spiral" duel –  John Rasch Nov 16 '09 at 17:48

Easy solution. Should be written as "1k"

Disagree, unless there's an easy way to see the exact vote total as well. I think if you earned that many votes for a post, you're likely to want to know just what the exact final score turns out to be. –  Joel Coehoorn Nov 16 '09 at 17:31

Well, you should be able to see the vote count beside the post itself. I think using a "K" makes it look much more unique! –  LeakyCode Nov 16 '09 at 17:48

You could just make the actual number appear as a tooltip with "1.0k" in the box. –  beggs Nov 19 '09 at 14:57
    
besides in a few days bobince's cuthulu regex-html answer will need to be "1.0m" –  beggs Nov 19 '09 at 14:58

Bob's got a cookie monster avatar. It's a tragedy that this is not included in the screeshots.

Its just barely inside the box with the latest version of Opera.

that's because Opera is rendering all the fonts smaller than every other browser (Safari, Chrome, IE, Firefox). Why? Who knows.. –  Jeff Atwood Nov 20 '09 at 2:54

Makes me wish we could favorite answers.
