RFC: Current PerlMonks page rendering

While doing some testing on the new design against the current one I stumbled upon a rendering error in the current PerlMonks on Android 4.0.3 browsers. Here is a screen shot showing the rendering error that adds extra whitespace. Android 4.0.3

Scrolling further down the page it becomes apparent this bug is only for that section of rendered content. When a new content section is rendered like "New Cool Uses for Perl" the whitespace is no longer present. Android 4.03 mid-page

Has anyone else noticed any rendering problems with PM when not logged in?

Here are some screenshots of different browsers with PM loaded as a reference:
Android 2.3.3
Firefox 12.0 on Linux - Full page render
IE 7.0
IE 8.0
IE 9.0
Seamonkey 1.1.16 on FreeBSD
Opera 11.62 on Windows XP

    Using PerlMonks blue theme on a Samsung Galaxy S2 (Cyanogenmod 9/Android 4.0.4), when the page is rendered in portrait rather than landscape mode you can see the problem. Portrait shot/landscape shot.

    Looks like a browser bug to me.

    A bit off the topic, but since you are doing redesign work, could you up the font size a bit for code blocks? They are illegible in all of your captures except the Opera one.

    I don't know what the browsers are rendering it as, but 13px monospace looks quite okay to me.

      Yes the whole site's typography is getting a refresh.
