This post is used for testing purposes; if you somehow don't have the new CSS (after doing a cache refresh like CTRL+F5) you can use an extension like Stylebot for Chrome and copy iglvzx's CSS into it. I'm unaware of such add-on for Firefox, so they might need to write an user style sheet or write a GM user script to insert a <style> tag. For Internet ...

From the screenshot, one can see that the font is something ricidulously wide. It's actually one of the fonts explicitly specified in the CSS (and not a generic sans-serif fallback for people that have no fonts), DejaVu Sans Bold, and therefore a legitimate bug.

The W3C's HTML 4 default stylesheet does not define colors and leading web usability consultant Jakob Nielsen only argues that unvisited and visited links should be different colors. Since Super User does use different colors, one color not being darker or brighter than the other is trivial. If you must, you can use always a custom stylesheet in your web ...
