Hmpf. Just noticed that Internet Explorer 6 royally fucks up when displaying the website's 'current-issue' page. It's that list - for some reason IE6 doesn't like it. :cry:

That's one for me to fix later. Looks fine in IE7 though.

Fixed the problem at work, but won't be able to re-upload the page until I get home tonight. Frustrating!
