WORKSFORME. The page (permalink to at that time: appears OK to me (and Brion on IRC). The closing might be a *bit* off, but other than that, seems ok. Is this it?
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-12-19 03:16:37 UTC
Actually it does look kind of funny... Took these three examples out of [[Egyptian hieroglyphs]]:

The three separate names have different total box heights, but the cartouche ends are all scaled to 44 pixels high.

The problem seems to be that the images are all given a 1-pixel margin (WH_IMG_MARGIN) around them, but these don't seem to get taken into account when sizing up the cartouche boundary -- the ends are just scaled to WH_HEIGHT (44 pixels). As a result, vertical stacking of smaller glyphs vertically expands the inside of the cartouche, and the ends no longer match up.

Still looks bad. Venturing to say that this is an EASY bug.
