This is where we report problems with GuideML and browsers, so you know that it's not our fault...
If you spot an error that you think is a problem with your browser let us know the details below, and if you are right we'll list it on this page.

HEADER tags have very little space below them - this isn't a problem on any other of the popular browsers.

Long BOXHEADER titles do not wrap - this isn't a problem on the Windows version of IE 5.
|Konqueror (versions prior to 2.2.1)|
|Windows Netscape Gold 3.03|

- Posting to a forum
- Searching h2g2
- Adding a user page
- Editing a user page
- Adding a journal entry
So you can see that it will happen fairly often.
The solution is one of the following:
