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).
