For some reason, the formatting fucks up and I can't read half of the text when I maximize the window that opens up.

I was trying to tell JB that that was happening to me on my work computer.  I see it fine here at home.

It's your browser.  If you were to copy and paste it, you could view it.  

Also, changing the aspect of your browser seems to make it reformat itself correctly.

Maybe someone with HTML knowledge (Ono?) can look at the code and tell us what's causing it.

The code shouldn't be different from any of the other articles, though. Maybe it's all those asterisks.

What browser is this problem in?  Looks fine for me in Mozilla for Mac.

I'm using IE, when I stretch the window horizontally, the text starts to disappear under a vertical black bar, maybe a table, I have no clue, I don't know much about it. I'm viewing at 1024x768 if that helps

I think every Windows user should use Firefox (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/)... IE is a nightmare in general...

The problem as I see it is you have a table with a width of 250%.  That's a no-no, and it's probably what's causing that disappearance.  Width should never exceed 100%.  Try working within those guidelines, and whatever problem you've had should probably go away.  Also, try validating the pages.  You've already got the !DOCTYPE declaration at the top, so that's a good start.  http://validator.w3.org will tell you any other technical problems with the page.  If you're confused about what any of the error messages mean, just ask.

Thank you! It should be fixed now.

Did this happen with every article, or just this one? Because the 250% glitch that Ono found was on every article (on the by line tables).
