    Nothing major, just "Golson" appearing in the wrong place. I think the font needs to be made just a fraction smaller :)

    I concur. I replicated it. :)

    Yeah, he seems a bit confused about his place lately... :D

    Just kiddin' now...

    Seriously though, I've seen this overflow a number of times before but didn't think enough of it to report it. But now that I'm here, I'll second third this finding. Sometimes happens with long links as well, though not as an overflow but where they extend the mobile page rightward until the end of the link.

    Here are some other example of the overflow (see attached).

    For Jordan, it appears to only happen when the day of the month is in double-digits and the time of day is in double-digits for both the hour and minutes. As such, Nermal's idea of reducing the text slightly would probably work.

    For Marianne, I think her name's just hopelessly long. :eek: ;)

    As for the link extending the page, it was part of quoted text from an email (in this article) and I'm guessing that either the fact that it was quoted or the quotation's use of "<" & ">" caused it not to wrap (wraps fine in my desktop browser).

    And, lastly, the "Use mobile theme" toggle at the very bottom of the mobile site could use a little iOS 5+ mojo...

    Thanks, folks...we'll get that fixed. We fixed it one time in the past, but then we made some other changes and it looks like the font reverted to the larger size.

    Note to Alexander Smithonomowicz...I don't think we can hire you because your name doesn't fit in our mobile theme.
