I did a little bit of searching but didn't find any similar posts on this. I'm using NS 4.75 at work and the layout is very different from that when viewed with IE. The layout differences are not that important to me but the comment on Average number of caffeinated beverages per work day link is not visible using my version of NS. For those of you in the same boat, the link though not visible is clickable below the number of votes (on my screen anyway). Otherwise, the only way to comment is to reply to someone elses post.

Note that I'm not complaining about NS 4.7x formatting in general, which I recall reading about somewhere previously, just the issue on the poll comments link.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I'm so embarrassed I almost considered forgoing this reply. Crow is not my favorite dish, but I'm an honest kind-of-guy who doesn't mind admitting his own studpidity when warranted.

    My NS incompatibility turned out to be the result of checking the Always use my colors, overriding the document box of the Appearance/Colors section of NS preferences. Since my background color is white and the text of most table header cells at PM is a similar color . . .

    Sorry for having wasted anyone's time and junking up the PMD section.

[LanX]: pryrt: yeah, that's why I didn't consider, but the last >10 anonymous posts are from the same troll-person
[jdporter]: is there a module for expanding tabs in text?
[jdporter]: A: yes.
[Lady_Aleena]: I don't know how hard it will be to get out of that mess.
[LanX]: M-x untabify
[choroba]: I don't think they're multiple people. I was told "he or she" sounds old-fashioned and "they" is the way to say it
[pryrt]: Those others were definitely offensive or unequivocably rude, I agree.
[choroba]: (well, it comes from the 14th century, so labelling it as "modern" doesn't seem appropriate)
[Your Mother]: "They" is becoming accepted but it irritates me sometimes. I tend to just pick she or he randomly or try to use "one."
