I'm not trolling, but reporting what I observe. Last evening there were blank spaces wherever the HTML "i" tags were in use. Two words come to mind to describe an interface plagued with such behavior: unreliable and unstable. I won't defile more impolite words by applying them to this stillborn interface.

That is strange? I don't know whether that is a bug with IA's interface or your browser, but it certainly shouldn't be happening (didn't think something like that could happen). Well, after learning that 97% of forum links do not link to forums, this doesn't really surprise me too much. You've tried <i>italics</i>, but have you tried <em>emphasized</em>, yet? Maybe this will work out better for you; it does the same job of italics. Also, if the problem persists, then report back what kind of browser you are using (maybe other users have experienced the same problem, or it affects only certain users but they haven't tried using italics yet). In any case, I want to compile a list of all the errors, strange functionality, and things like this on the Internet Archive, so that I can send a possible fix to garthus or stbalbach (or maybe they already have an idea for said fixes). If the admins or Archivists were interested in helping out in this respect, than they would've replied when I posted the following (I posted something like this at least 2 other times… no response, of course):
Another thing that I think is important is to allow users to comment on how the Archive's interface or features currently function for them on their browser, and allowing them to rate certain features, and to even contribute code and ideas if they want to improve something.

It was also possible that the window of opportunity for you to observe the lapse for yourself was short lived. I seriously doubt it's a bug in Google Chrome, which is by far the most stable and reliable browser, but I've been known to be wrong. In any case, I stand by my contention that the "new" interface is stillborn.
