Description David Broadfoot 2007-11-25 12:54:00 UTC
see the above URL whre I have placed an in-line comment to the right of the problem, which is that:

[ Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry].

gets rendered as "Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry    ."
instead of "Journal of Electroanalytical Chemistry."
Comment 1 David Broadfoot 2007-11-25 14:24:11 UTC
I just saw it on another page too. It happens when the link text wraps past the end of the line.

Comment 2 Tim Starling 2007-11-27 06:55:19 UTC
Looks fine to me, there's no space in the HTML output between "Chemistry</a>" and ".". Is this fixed already?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-12-06 18:25:57 UTC
Perhaps that's the space for the icon, and there was a transitory problem loading the icon or a browser-specific rendering problem? Shows fine for me in Firefox atm.
Comment 4 David Broadfoot 2007-12-07 03:38:36 UTC
Yes, the space is the result of the missing icon. The bug happens on IE6, but not on Firefox nor on Safari.  It's easier to ocate the bug on this smaller page:
in the first sentence under the heading "Fighting record"

Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2007-12-07 16:29:08 UTC
Add IE issues tracking bug dependency.
Comment 6 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-12-18 18:07:57 UTC
In IE, as I recall, padding on inline elements is (incorrectly) added to the end of any line where the inline element occurs, even if the element also wraps to the next line.  (It should be added to the end of the element before it gets wrapped to lines, according to the standard.)  This is probably unavoidable if we want to keep the cute little external link icons.

Is this fixed in IE7?  I think not, but my memory may be failing me.
Comment 7 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-06-04 11:06:06 UTC
Update Web browser.
Comment 8 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-06-04 11:35:35 UTC
Adding testme. Please test with Internet Explorer 8 and note the result here.
Comment 9 Bryan Baron 2009-10-26 21:45:57 UTC
Can't reproduce in IE8 (neither in compatible mode).
