There seems to be a slight bug with the formatting on this answer: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/228038/best-way-to-reverse-a-string-in-c-2-0

The issue I'm seeing is that the footer (link|edit|flag etc. at the bottom of the answer) is appearing in Consolas instead of the usual font. No other answer to the same question has this problem. I am seeing the issue in both IE8 and Chrome.

Here's a concatenation of images of two footers from the same question:

them blocks, they burst

Meaningless whitespace edit fixes up the problem and pushes the content of the post back into its boundary.

could also be erroneous truncation, since the post was last saved (rendered to HTML) wayyy back in October of 2008. Either way. – Jeff Atwood Jan 21 '10 at 8:16

The fact that you were able to notice that speaks volumes of your eyesight (and mine, I suppose).
