Description Christopher Yeleighton 2008-10-07 20:47:15 UTC
The following declaration in printCommon.css damages the display of subscripts in Microsoft Internet Explorer (7):

p, .documentDescription {
    margin: 1em 0 ! important;
    line-height: 1.2em;

The subscripts get partially covered by the following line, the lower part disappears on selecting text.

The workaround is to specify


somewhere afterwards.

On en.wp we are now experimenting with some CSS added trough js,

Specifically targeted for IE.

Christopher: Looks like this does not exist anymore? 

At least I cannot find "documentDescription" or "printCommon.css" anywhere in the MediaWiki codebase.
Comment 3 Andre Klapper 2013-03-14 17:17:51 UTC
I stand corrected. core/skins/common/commonPrint.css still exists, with this line:

p {
	margin: 1em 0;
	line-height: 1.2em;
Comment 4 Christopher Yeleighton 2013-04-01 19:47:39 UTC
I do not know about v7 but the subscripts look all right in v8.  Effective line-height is 1.5em.
