I can't see the source of the wiki due to insufficient participation in friday events, but the always-friday-in-iceland tag wiki and the waffles tag wiki appear very broken. The alignment of items is shoved out of line, and the styling on tags is all weirded. I don't see it on other pages so my guess is that the images are breaking it.

In case it's just on my end, specs are IE8 on XP.

the horror

Looks fine on Opera. And that's all that matters. – random Jul 30 '10 at 17:11
Switch to a real browser. – JSONBog Jul 30 '10 at 17:19
@Weblog I'm working on it! Just can't at work. – Grace Note Jul 30 '10 at 17:20
@Grace: That's no excuse. I'm at work too. – JSONBog Jul 30 '10 at 17:21
Nobody is at work. Especially if there are no downvotes. @web – random Jul 30 '10 at 17:25
STFU, random. I got a lot of stuff done today, even! – JSONBog Jul 30 '10 at 17:27
Looks fine to me on Firefox 3.6.x/Windows XP (I was the one who added the Iceland pic, BTW). – Ether Jul 30 '10 at 17:51
Looks fine to me on the current Chrome daily, although there is now a paragraph before the first image. – badp Jul 30 '10 at 17:53
Meetings are no substitute for real work. @web – random Jul 30 '10 at 17:54
@random: Like I said, I did real work today. No meetings at all! Yesterday, too. It's so nice to actually have several hours to work without interruption. – JSONBog Jul 30 '10 at 18:04
Reproduced on IE8. Looks like IE still sucks... – Shog9 Jul 30 '10 at 18:14
Looks like an IE-only issue, then. Thanks, @Shog9. Also, the paragraph didn't change anything. – Grace Note Jul 30 '10 at 18:14
@Grace: I know. Worth a shot though; there's always a possibility that IE will suck predictably... – Shog9 Jul 30 '10 at 18:24

This was due to some buggy markup, firefox and chrome are much more forgiving.

Interestingly it was not cause by the images but by the markup for the tag synonyms

Confirmed not working in IE8

IE8 Normal & Compatibility Mode alt text

Tested and Working

  • Windows
    • Firefox 3.6.8
    • Google Chrome 5.0.375.86
  • Linux
    • Google Chrome 6.0.472.11 dev
    • Chromium 5.0.375.99 (51029)
    • Firefox 3.6.8

Please don't label this [status-bydesign] just because its IE/made by Microsoft. This is a legitimate display issue that needs to be fixed.

Go to MS' bugtracker and file a CSS bug. With any luck they'll fix it on IE 10. – perbert Jul 30 '10 at 19:52
