has anything changed in the last day or two with the news reader web pages?? or is my browser acting up?? i am seeing things like:
1. the 'previous' and 'next' in the bottom bar on the index page are the same color as the bar, they do change color when you mouse over them and they do work.
2. the new message link on the top of the index page is white which is the same color as the background, if you know where it is you can click on it and it works, but you can't see it.
3. on the thread reading view there are no frames around the messages and the menus are on the left, kind of like the table got lost and everything is just like an old plain text message reader.
4. some other things don't look quite right, maybe more links hidden or something i can't quite put my finger on... though this message editing page looks just fine.

Same for me, using IE6. Haven't tried it with IE7 or Chrome recently.

yeah, we are stuck on ie6 here... our IT hasn't approved ie7 for us yet, ie8 will probably be out before they do that.

Hi guys!

Thanks for reporting this. You are quite right, it does look odd. Our engineers have identified the problem and are working to fix the style sheets.

Thanks again,

Just to say that this problem with the formatting has occurred again.
