I have noticed when I look at some PHP sites on either Win NT or Win 2K that wierd lines appear, for no apparent reason, quite often where there are links or form. This does not happen with non PHP pages, nor does it happen if you are on another OS. What is there I can do to offset this issue for Win 2K and Win NT users? Thanks

Are you saying this is happening in *every* browser when run under 2K or NT, and for *every* geeklog theme? If not, please be more specific. A screenshot would also be helpful to show people what exactly you're refering to. Also, the fact that it only happens for PHP pages is kinda strange. As PHP runs on the server-side, the browser has no way of really knowing whether a page is PHP-generated or not.

No, sorry I guess I should be a little clearer. I am reffering to IE in NT/2K machines. No it does not seem to happen to all PHP sites. It does happen to many though. I will see about getting a screen shot of the issue but at this time I do not have one. I have seen it on the Smooth Blue theme to be sure, but have not on the Xsilver theme so it may be theme related or it may be that I just do not use many of the other themes and so am not sure. It looks like a bunch of dashes ----------------- wherever there is either links or a form. If you scroll up and down it sometimes goes away and other times does not. I have tried it on a number of different machines and so I know it is not affecting just my machine. I know I have seen this issue on other sites such as www.birstep.com I am not sure if it only happens in IE 6 or if IE 5 also has the same display issue. Any assistance would be helpful.
