In my browser (Chrome 29 on Windows 7), descenders are chopped off in comments, which makes it fairly annoying to read, as g's look like q's (most other letters with descenders are fairly unambiguous, ypj)

Post prose is fine, it just seems to be a comment issue just on Ask Ubuntu (Stack Overflow is fine).

It looks fine under Chrome in Ubuntu (29 on 12.04), and IE10 on Win7 (same machine as where Chrome chops them)

Broken descenders on AU

  • I was almost sure it was my fonts... results I'm not the only one imgs.xkcd.com/comics/wisdom_of_the_ancients.png – Braiam Sep 23 '13 at 23:31
  • I'm not sure this is something we can solve, it seems to be specific to your config. – RolandiXor Sep 24 '13 at 0:06
  • @RolandiXor do you mean to say that it is not reproducible or it's just an edge case? People who use Chrome under Windows isn't exactly a minor, 'edge' case. – Nick T Sep 24 '13 at 0:27
  • meta.askubuntu.com/questions/6975/gs-look-like-qs-font-oddity seems related. – user25656 Sep 24 '13 at 2:46
  • @NickT well most people here use Ubuntu ;) I am not in Chromium right now but I've not noticed this issue before. – RolandiXor Sep 24 '13 at 3:45
  • I've been seeing this for a while even on Firefox running on Ubuntu but only because I don't use the default font, whatever that is. If I use the default font, there's no truncation of the descenders. – user25656 Sep 24 '13 at 6:17

    I have the same issue on Chrome+Windows. – Bruno Pereira Sep 24 '13 at 8:28
  • .comment-copy { line-height: **px !important } or whatever px works for me. – user25656 Sep 25 '13 at 2:56
