What's up with the weird sideways quotey boxes?

Is this happening to anyone else? Sometimes the quote appears above the reply (as usual), sometimes it appears beside the reply (which I find annoying), and sometimes it just gets weird:

Well, like the quotey boxes, things seem to be in a state of flux. Pondering my next step, and where it will take me... I could use an environmentalist moonbat to help me plot my insidious takeover of the Chinese basket-weaving industry. You got some free time?

Safari users (including myself), both Mac and PC, are affected by the latest change. I've informed those who made the change of how very much not amused (to put it mildly) we are.

It's the neon ads on the condoms that really get in the way.

Ah, but you see... all of my "eggs" will be in baskets, so I will have nothing left over for eggs. Only one basket will be inside one basket; all the other baskets will be in at least two baskets. Ergo, all but one of my baskets will be in more than one basket, so all but one of my eggs will be in not one basket.

I would be more worried about finding storage for your bass collection -- it seems to be growing at a terrible pace.

I'm using OmniWeb, but I think it uses a version of the Safari engine. Not amused, indeed... It's giving me a headache!

Exaaaaaactly.


Actually, I'm surprised some companies haven't thought of it. Like JiffyLube.
