Comment problems

A reader writes that he’s having problems viewing the comments pages on this blog. Is anyone else having problems? Obviously if you can’t read comments you can’t comment on this post, so email me instead. Please include what operating system you’re using (Windows XP or OS X 10.4 or the like) and what web browser and version (Internet Explorer 6.0 or Firefox 1.5, etc.).

Update: Once again, it looks like the problem is limited to Internet Explorer running on Windows XP. The page is all there, it’s just that you have to scroll way down the page to see the comments. Why? I don’t know. It looks fine in every other browser I’ve tried, including Firefox. If someone has a bright idea, I’ll fix it, but until then I can only recommend people stop using Internet Explorer (which is full of security holes anyway) and use Firefox.

Update 2: Fixed I think. One of the Google ads was too wide, which the other browsers could deal with intelligently. However, Internet Explorer decided to be petulant and refuse to display the page correctly.
