I'm not too good with CSS, but I think that other_foi_v4.css is causing a problem with the buttons and other inputs (at least for me). At a glance it seems that the line

line-height: 150%; }

in the body element is being inherited by form inputs and causing the problem. I tested a quick fix by putting

input {
	line-height: 100%;

which seems to do the trick, but I'm unsure of how it will effect the rest of the site.

P.S. While previewing this post I also noticed that the v4 code \[code\] doubles up linefeeds.

Hmm... I'm not sure what issue you're talking about, jcore. O_o But maybe I'm not using the right browser or such. The "other" stylesheet is supposed to be used by any browser other than Windows IE... I checked out what the forms look like on a Mac with IE and then with Mozilla, but I didn't see any problems. What is the problem and what browser/platform are you using when you see it?

As I write this I'm taking a screenshot so that you can see what I'm talking about...
You can see the same thing in the concept screenshot provided by whoever it was (sorry, forgot) that created the new icons for navigation (it was on a Mac).

The browser is Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; NetBSD i386; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20021204

Oh wow! A NetBSD user! :)

Now that I look at it, the problem you mention happens on Mozilla/win32 as well, but isn't as noticeable because the letters are not lowered enough that they get cut off. I guess it's a font thing.

Anyway, I added your code to the CSS file. You might have to hit refresh to get it to update.

(BTW, the really strange bracing style in the CSS files is Kass's doing, not mine. ;) )

AHA! I wondered about that. The text on my buttons always dropped far enough to get partially cut off. They look much better now, so thanks for the fix! :)

You never have to work with my code again, Temp, so get over it. :P

I used to use the same bracing style. Now I just bring the last brace down to the next line. But, with all the lint/indent-style programs nowadays...does it even matter as much? ;)
