Sent a message to the board, but no reply.

My display has recently changed to display the list of forums on the left 1/2 of the screen, with the threads all stacked up on only the right 1/2 of the screen. Changing the display options has no effect. Anyone know why/how to go back to full-width display of forum threads? (This on a Mac, Safari browser, that has until recently been fine)

It appears to be an issue with the text linking the Google ads forcing the text size of that column in Safari. Firefox apparently compensates for the bad HTML (bad Firefox)

missing left bracket.

I've had the same problem using my mac. It is really annoying.

No problem using the Dell with IE.

Agreed. For what it's worth, I'm on Safari and experiencing the same problem. Suggestions would be much appreciated.

It's an error with the page, not the browser - it would have to be fixed by the admins.

Safari doesn't try to render malformed HTML - as opposed to Firefox and IE.

The current source is:

It should be:

There are HTML encoding values embedded in the HTML. They need to be removed. Someone used a funky editor last time they save this document.
