Note: this doesn't happen in FF4 - only in Chrome. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Apr 9 '11 at 23:47
It also works correctly in Safari 5.0.4 – ughoavgfhw Apr 10 '11 at 0:08

Works fine on Chrome 12.0.725.0 dev. – Mike Apr 10 '11 at 0:31
I have Chrome 11.0.696.34 beta. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Apr 10 '11 at 0:47
I see nothing wrong in my Chrome 10. – John Apr 10 '11 at 2:34
@John: What OS are you using? – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Apr 10 '11 at 3:05
Ubuntu 10.04 ^^^ – John Apr 10 '11 at 3:06
