Hmm...it doesn't appear that way to me, but from the feedback thread stickied in Off Course, it sounds like folks are seeing different things with different browsers perhaps.
That's something we'll check into as well. We'll be adjusting aspects of the font for increased readability. The color does alter when a thread is read, but it's not as pronounced, so that's something on our "list."
It looks all squished up for me, too, and the thing about Jessie someone Zaruda and Caroli and some arrows on the right side by the photos and video (2 kids in pink shirts) is not readable--half of it is off in some black space.
And I agree with the above posters about how I can't read it, type is too light, etc.
Haaalllpppp!! I am using Explorer and my computer has vista on it. Thanks. Rebecca
