    Unreadable Responses

    Today on the Puzzles forum (the reply from LawS and also DenGar to AT-Logic #4-5) I opened the replies and could not see the text as it was yellow text on yellow backgound. I had to select the text with my mouse to really highlight the text, then I could read the blue text on gray background. I went to a second machine and the same thing.

    Since those two machines have similar color schemes, I went to my wife's system to make sure it was not something with the way I set up my systems. I did not log in as anyone and read the same post - again the replies looked like a yellow bar. I had to drag my mouse over it to highlight the text in order to read it.

    Those all run IE 6, one is XPP, the others are running XP Home.

    Final test - WinMe with IE6 on an SETI cruncher PC in the basement - Same thing - not all the replies - but consistently the same ones.

    Your ball, run with it.

    later...

    Since it happened on her machine and the one downstairs too, I don't believe it is on our end.

    This is a feature of the lounge. You can find it on the TagPanel as the yellow box marked HIDE. It's used especially in the Puzzle forum to give the answer but not readable at the first look.
