I've seen The Star have wonky and red-colored text on and off for months now. Not sure what's going on there...

Perhaps someone changed the visited link colour back to the 1997 preferences.

Wonder if that's some sort of Cache issue. Could be CSS related. Looks disgusting.

Seems they lost their mind temporarily and thought they were The Toronto Sun.

I've been looking at this pic for 2 days now, and frankly, I don't get the reason for this thread.

Is it the blood??

I think it's all the red text links (they are normally blue).

Ah!!

Thank you. Not a Star fan.

NOW it makes sense.

But I see nothing wrong with heightening the colour of blood to get the message across.

It is possible the arc lighting might be heightening the colour of the blood.

hehe that would do it. Interesting that they would dynamically transfer stylesheets but break the mime type.

Their poor rendering on their web site is the least of their worries - perhaps they should concentrate on making a paper that is actually worth reading...
