What happens[edit]

It turns out that Evan did not really intend to vandalise [1] the en:Vienna article. The problem is:

  1. Use Firefox
  2. Click on "Edit" for Vienna.
  3. Go to some other tab.
  4. Come back to the original tab.
  5. You'll see that the text for the Vienna article has got cut off at exactly the same spot that was cut off for Evan.

Holy crumbs! I had the same problem a while ago. I'm going to try to figure out the problem. --Evan 14:07, 14 June 2006 (EDT)
OK, looks like a known bug in MediaWiki, see [2]. I've uninstalled the Google Toolbar, which seems to be the culprit. --Evan 14:21, 14 June 2006 (EDT)
