    Microsoftland

    Of the IE bugs I've encountered, this one takes the cake. Internet Explorer 7 (and only 7) wasted an hour of my time today by deciding to create a horizontal scrollbar double the size of the page when using italicized text.

    Font-style: italic in a float = double the page size.

    Thank you Microsoft. It's going to take me a few hours of Banjo Tooie to get over the mind-boggling mechanics of this x_x

    Got a link? Chances are something is screwing the browser up.

    The issue is fixed; however, it appears the font-style: italic on div#footer span.fright a:link was causing IE7 to create a horizontal scroll bar. I managed to fix it by adding overflow:hidden to div#footer, but this is still the oddest error I've ever seen.
