Great work. :-)

Also, is the font size supposed to be so big when writing a post?

Awesome Work matt, romain and everyone who worked on the forum!. But Im the same as sean, the font size when writing a post is kinda big and is the text meant to be bold??

Sean: Probably not. There's a font-size of 1.4em on the textarea and title field, which seems to be why it looks fubar'd.

I'm sure someone will fix this sometime next week.

(Replace 'someone' with 'Sean' in the above sentence makes the sentence make much more sense)

Another problem is that the content of the post is below the author in IE7, the float doesn't seem to work and I think the problem is that you specify the width of DIV.posterContent.. a little bit hard to explain, so lets try out the new inline images :-)

Markus... good find. What are you using IE7 for anyway? :P

Since IE is still the most used browser I think more developers should use it :-P

It makes no sense if something looks great in Firefox but >80% of the users have problems because they use IE...

And another point: Normally it is much easier to fix a IE site for Firefox then vice-versa :D

Two other small "bugs" I found:
* The RSS feeds aren't formatted at all.. the 's and so on are visible there
* I think

should also use white-space: pre and maybe the headers "TEXT:", "HTML:", and "PHP:" should be dropped...
