Some questions (eg bug for the JDBCDriver are running across the side bar on the right of the page in Chrome (v15.0.874.121 m) and Firefox (v8.0) but are OK in IE (v8). Other questions seem fine.

I have some ideas on how to fix this. Next challenge is to find time to fix it.

It seems to be due to a rather long text containing an URL - now turned into a link element - as such the layout problem is gone...


EDIT: Unfortunately, as I added this (not very informative) line above, now this site looks awful:(

Edit by Graeme: Removed the test string to make this post readable.

Feel free to clean up:)

This page shows the same overflow problem in IE8 as well.

Not too easy to catch the "Reply" button...

Looks like a "character overrun" - or is it a "wordbreak starvation":)

I shudder to say it, but are scroll bars the answer?

... or it is like the old joke: "Doctor doctor, it hurts when I do this [insert some crazy thing]. Reply: Well, stop doing it!".

The forum admin will know - personally, I just would break the offending line of text (as I have done in the original sample):)
