Frustration fixed

Your rating: None Average: 5 (3 votes)

Many thanks to Flayrah reader Crassus for providing the html fix to eliminate the white bar to the left of the graphic that has been plaguing me. Karma points to you, dude.

Now how about fixing the absolute widths on the main page so that I don't have to mess around with horizontal scrolling? };>

(It's usually relative, but every so often it's tweaked and becomes absolute for a few days.)

Absolute widths on what?

Maybe the width on the logo? Because the logo seems stretched horizontally, at least on my machine, running MSIE 5.5 at 1028x768.

Smile! The world could use another happy person.

Absolute widths on what?

Some component of the main page (not the header or footer, but the articles section) has an absolute-width tag (instead of the usual "percentage width" specifier).

This means that on my 800x768 browser window, the main page is cropped horizontally (I have to scroll to the right to see the cropped article text, vote box, etc.).

While nothing *stops* me from scrolling, this _is_ quite irritating }:>.
