On a new eBay listing, all five paragraphs were suppose to be Comic Sans 12, but only the last paragraph displays properly; the first four are Arial 12. Checked the HTML - everything correct. Rebooting and repeating the viewing has no effect. Comic Sans has previously ALWAYS viewed properly. When this same page is viewed with Internet Explorer, the font displays properly. eBay Customer Service online confirms it is a browser problem.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View the URL using Firefox; font displays erroneously
2. View the URL using Internet Explorer 6; font displays properly
3. Reboot, then repeat Steps 1 & 2

Actual Results:  
Repeatable each and every time. Firefox - improper font display; IE - proper font display.

Expected Results:  
Shown the font correctly as defined in the HTML for the description.

HTML and view from IE confirmed by eBay Customer Service online. I will have to use IE when listing on eBay from now on.
