The title bar in this UBB message does not format properly.  This happens more
often then not on all UBB type message boards.

The text I'm referring to is in the block right above the message body and says
" The Reef Tank   » Reef Forums   » General Reef Discussion   » ok new here and
need HELP lo"  This should be all on one line with the block frame the same size
as the message body frame.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.go to the url and view it

Actual Results:  text not properly displayed, looks like Warpzilla is using cr's
instead of spaces or tabs at the "»".  Additionally the frame is the wrong size.

Expected Results:  text should be continous, no cr's and the frame should be the
same size as the message body frame.

I can recreate this on Windows if I up the font size. I think this is font
related, not browser related.

Can you try using a smaller font in prefs and see what happens?

OS/2 Warpzilla comes with a default font size of 16.  This problem happens with
14 and above.  Font size of 13 and below and this doesnt happen.

Upon further testing with all fonts and sizes, the problem happends all the
time.  It is more intermittant with the smaller fonts, but happends with all
font sizes.

I'm going to mark this all platforms, as I see it on Windows.

Here is the reproduction scenario.

Load the page. Notice the Bar at the top below the logo that says "You 
are not logged in" In particular, notice the links on the right side of 
this bar.

Use Ctrl++ to make the font larger 10 times.

Then use Ctrl+- to make the font smaller 10 times.

Notice that the links on the right side of the bar are not formatted 
correctly anymore. They should look exactly the same as when we 

I believe it is this bug that is causing the problem, and this problem 
happens on Windows as well.

Summary: text formating incorrect. Looks like getting cr instead of space or tab → text formating incorrect
