Text composition bug report

Line breaks in forum posts occasionally repeat the last word in a line as the first word in the next line.

    They don't seem to when
    when I try :-)

    Look at the first and second lines of this post. If it doesn't manifest for you, maybe it's a browser-related bug. I am using MSIE 10.0.09 under Windows 7. Ha! This very post does it on the word "related"!

    No, not seeing it in IE10.0.920 on Win 7.

    How very odd. I wonder how to isolate this. I see it quite often. It only occurs when the word is set to the very end of the column. Some kind of boundary error.

    Though, my last post above is no longer doing it on the word "related," but is instead ending the first line at the hyphen, as you would expect.

    ^ This post does it, too. "... set to the / the very end ..."

    Maybe something funky is going on with my font metrics for the fonts your CSS is fetching up?

    I'm looking at it in a Safari 5.1.7 browser, in which the first line of each post is indented past the user's avatar. In my MSIE, the first line starts flush left. So the line breaks come in different places.

    Now I'm looking at it on another computer running Win7...

    MSIE 10.0.9 lines are flush left, but line breaks are occurring in different places.

    Opera 12.16 on that machine is setting text like MSIE on this one, but without the line break bug.

    Firefox 23.0.1 sets the same, and no line break bug.

    Bizarre. But maybe not affecting many (if any) people other than me.

    Yes could be something like that although the font looks pretty standard, and it's actually not 'my' CSS as it comes with the hosted platform.
