Description Seb35 2007-01-04 23:50:10 UTC
Since some time the both pages [[w:fr:Special:Specialpages]] and [[w:fr:Special:Allmessages]] 
have a problem of presentation in Opera and Internet Explorer (not Firefox). It is like if the 
page is zoomed.

I have made some try and when I remove the first white line at the begin of the source code of 
the page, it works. The problem occurs only in the french-speaking wikis, although the first 
white line is present in all wikis.

Confirmed on the French Wikipedia under Internet Explorer 7, but I can't
reproduce this on a vanilla install of trunk selecting the French language.

I'm inclined to suspect:

* an extension installed on those wikis that's not elsewhere
* a local JavaScript customisation causing problems

Will see if I can pinpoint this.

The initial space isn't local to frwiki.  Compare to, for instance.  The strange
display is probably a result of the *interaction* between Opera and IE
displaying in quirks mode (which Firefox does not) and local stylesheets. 
Obviously it's the first that should be fixed, not the second.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-01-05 01:46:59 UTC
Fixed in r18830; extra whitespace on an extension file which gets loaded during
special page lists.
