Went to a new Irish Pub here in Salem, right down the street –McSwiggin’s. You gotta love a name like that. Anyway, tried a new beer I’ve never had before, Tucher Weizen. It’s a German wheat beer, with that cloudy, yeasty, served-with-a-lemon type thing going on. Refreshing, with a touch of mellow smoothness.

It’s annoying, but Netscape displays input boxes, textareas, etc. differently (larger) than IE. I’ve found out that it’s due to Netscape using the browser’s monospaced font for form elements, while IE does not. What to do? Here’s an excellent explanation and fix for the problem. Inline CSS to the rescue.
