Lor M. Ipsum: I'm looking at the page source, and I can't find it...what the devil is causing this?
nilla: the header tag isn't optional on closing, which was obviously left out here.the font size uses em's, which are a relative sizing to the element's parent.each time a new h3 was opened, the font is increased by 1.17x.hard to imagine ms front page even allowed this to happen.who still uses front page?

dr.zaeus: OgreMagi: Don't use tables for non-tabular data.An important exception to this rule is HTML for email clients.
Snarfangel: Someone should set it to music.
100 Watt Walrus: I'll bet cash money the person who runs that site hasn't the slightest idea how to check their traffic stats. They won't have clue.
Larva Lump: Did they fix it?
ox45tallboy: TwistedFark: Yeah as other people have pointed out, I.E. quirks mode actually makes the site work as the author probably intended it (maybe? although I shudder to think about that....)The poor lady that runs the website will wake up tomorrow wondering why all these people redirected from Fark have a sudden interest in embroidery machine troubleshooting, and will load up the page to check for any errors and it will look perfectly fine to her.[www.ariionkathleenbrindley.com image 500x369]"What do they mean, hutummul tag?"

thisone: I have to admin, taking the professional mick out of high end sites is one thing. Doing it to small mom-and-pops isn't cool.This site has survived serious traffic spikes from fark, hacker news, and I assume reddit, something that many "pro" sites fail at.
rolladuck: At least with an old car, you can get that nostalgic feeling if you have one. That is gone forever with the web.
Notabunny: fta If a problem persists, we recommend that you contact Sewing and Embroidery WarehouseOk. I'll check back later.
Yuri Futanari: This is my favorite thing on the internet for this week.
Shadow Blasko: Just realized... Whoever runs that page is gonna wonder "What the HELL is with all the traffic?"*assuming some fark friendly web designer is not on the phone with this place at 8AM offering to fix their crap site.. for a reasonable fee...
MisterTweak: Ok, that gave me a good chuckle. Which got bigger. and bigger.
