An entry about some nifty software I've found:

I hate to say this, but there's something wrong with the formatting of that post that appwars to be rendering much of the text invisible.
yay! what browser? Or perhaps, what text do you see? The formatting is quite bizarre.
Firefox 2.0 on Linux.

What's interesting is that if I select the article text and paste it, I see what appears to be the full text pasted. But when I read the article in the browser, I see this (line breaks reproduced exactly as I see them):

good UI and useful too

I'm not really one to pimp something just because it has a pretty interface, but D
has style and use. It wraps up a pretty interface in a very useful
piece of software. Perhaps the best interface I've seen
to a multitude of websites in a long time. There's also a very pretty Safari plugin
for it that wraps up the interface, and like
most of those sorts of things allows a bit of customization too. I've been using it
quickly one of my favorite extensions for any piece of software.

A quick plug on one of David's other projects: NewsFire. A good OS X applicatio
quite nice.

There's actually less text hidden than I thought, once I can see the whole text via copy-and-paste. It seems as though what's happening is the article text is being rendered in a frame that is overlapped by the frame to its right and partially hidden behind it, but it's still all "there" and copyable.

actually...

nevermind, it was screwed up in Firefox. Fixed as best I can for now.
thanks.

Re: actually...

That's an improvement, but it still looks like about the rightmost quarter to half inch of the frame is masked.
