Hello, On my Mac I have a problem to read the topic titles.
The font size is simply too small!
Here you can see a picture how it looks for me:

Please, could you fix this?
Thanks!

Well, you're posting in the right area but it is a Bank Holiday weekend, so maybe they're away. I don't have this problem with the fonts using Opera, Firefox and IE on Windows XP. Perhaps the problem is with your setup?

I had a similar font problem in another forum site but it turned out that while typing in a post, I had pressed Ctrl instead of Shift and the next character corresponded to a hotkey for changing the Zoom level (on Opera's view menu) by +10%. It confused me for a while as I had several other tabs open and the fonts were fine in all other tabs.

No it's not my setup. Must be the forum's setup.
Never had such a problem with phpBB forums.
BTW many other forum members confirm the
problem in this thread:

There are only posts from 10 different users in that topic and there are 3795 users registered at present, which is less than 0.27%. So good luck with getting it fixed!

... but how many of these 3795 are *active* users?
I think most of the active users are using IE, where the problem is indiscernible.
I think many of those who noticed the problem didn't complain
(for example I noticed it long ago, but now I finally got up the energy to write).

Complaints, it's my department

It isn't that the problem is indiscernible,in my case..it's non-existent....I remember something about this previously...and wasn't there a tip on how to fix it by altering something in your profile???

(I don't like and I don't want to use other browsers just for this forum.)

Well, what do you know? I downloaded the latest Safari (4beta.528.16) for Windows XP and I get the font problem too! It's just on the Topic titles. No idea what's causing it, so I'm rushing back to Opera. Good luck!

From that, I deduce that either different HTML code is produced for each browser or the HTML code is the same for all browsers but each browser has its own way of interpretting the HTML code.

Because I can't see this problem on other phpBB forums,
I would deduce the cause for this problem must be located
in the HTML code of *this* forum. Whodunit...?

Not to fast RAINERX...

there are als many versions of BBsoftware and the database (MySQL?) behind it might also differ in versions and so react not as expected. We seem to have older BBsoftware at the forum 2001/2002 ??? That is almost when dinosaurs inhabitated the internet

By the same logic:

Because I can't see this problem on any phpBB forums when I use Opera, IE or Firefox but I do when I use Safari,
I would deduce the cause for this problem must be located
in Safari's interpretation of the HTML code.


I fear we are going around in circles...

Why should Safari interpret the HTML code of this one forum
in another way than the HTML code of all those other (different versions)
phpBB forums (where there's no problem)?
It seems the problem lies here...

If the problem was in the phpBB code on this forum then it would present itself in all browsers.

There are to many variables in finding the origin of this problem or rather bug.

PHP is used to buildt the pages of this website and even though i'm no webmaster or HTML-guru i do remember hearing this:

When you come to this site (or this page), each computer sends a lot of data across saying something like: hi, i am an xp computer with service pack 3 and IE6 version xxxx, i have java runtime engine JRE 1.6.13 installed and i do have flash plugin. Please send me the data so i can view this page on my machine.

So than the server over here process that info and send data across to each requester, and so the data i receive is somewhat different to that you'll receive. So many more things could have gone wrong or even a combination of errors.

Websites need to be optimized and made to fit the needs of every popular browser cos all (versions of) browsers interpreted the data send by the server in a different way. There are ofcourse standards but untill everybody uses them (websites- and browser-builders) it is a bit of a problem for some.

"I could start a song a tenor and then end as bass"

Meaning this site could have been buildt fine but now the rules might have changed and so it is no longer up to standard.
