in reply to Mysteriously Changing Font

Its a DNS issue. I don't know why (probably for browser caching benefits), but currently the CSS looks like

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://perlmonks.org/css/common.css" type +="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="?node_id=6181" type="text/css" />
If you're not using perlmonks.org, and you have some kind of DNS timeout, hitting refresh in your browser will probably resolve your current domain, but won't resolve perlmonks.org, so css/common.css won't load.

update: I started getting lots of DNS issues like this on a WinXP machine after putting it to sleep (used to work fine, but some update broke something %-p). The workaround is to restart the "DNS Client" service (services.msc) after hibernating.

I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    PodMaster,
    Thanks for the insight. Unfortunately I am using perlmonks.org which works fine other than the mysteriously messing up CSS. This happens when I am actively browsing the site (ok, I admit it - when I am chatting in the CB).

    Cheers - L~R

      I've experienced the same while using perlmonks.org. Its still just some kind of timeout. The browser just fails to fetch the css for whatever reason, a refresh generally fixes it :/

        PodMaster,
        Well if a refresh generally fixes it for you I am not sure we are describing the same problem. I have did a shift-reload, reload, opened a link in a new tab, etc and the only way I have been able to correct the bizarre behavior is to log in to an alternate domain and close the affected tabs. FWIW - the bizarre font behavior isn't always the same - sometimes things are bold that shouldn't be - sometimes the font changes size, etc.

        Cheers - L~R
