Out of the Blue

Folks mentioned wanting to swap the "share" and "comments" links on each story, which has been done. On a note related to recent changes here, I got a report from a reader experiencing a wild version of the site's format under WinXP and Firefox, which we are looking into. None of the recent changes should have drastically changed font sizes or anything, so if anyone else is seeing results like this, please feel free to bring it to our attention.

I've experienced the same odd huge text a few times this year. I'm running Vista and I haven't seen that issue since I installed IE8 Beta. Whenever I did have the weird text, no amount of changing IE's settings for Font Size made a difference and I put the whole thing down to being a bugfuckup of some description with IE more than this website, even moreso once the same problem occurred one the ninemsn website a couple of times, too.
Closing the browser and reopening the page solved the problem each time for me which, again, lead me to think the problem was browser and not site.
