I downloaded this today and it's making me nuts.  I just posted in another thread with links to some books and the formatting is all off.  Is anybody else having problems with this?

Ive heard waaaay too many reports about this being buggy as all get out.  Switch to Firefox or Google Chrome.  :)  I only use IE for a specific few websites.

Using IE8 on a XP Pro SP3 box... runs fast and smooth. Love the tabbed groups!

There are some quirks here at PBS. One is that you'll find some double line spacing in the forums with just an Enter, but if you do a Shift-Enter, you can single space.

As we go through time, websites will alter code to be more compatible with IE8. You know MS... they have to be special. ;)

Have you tried the compatiblity view?  I have never tried it, but it's supposed to help you view websites that are written for older IE versions.

Thanks for the Shift+Enter tip.  That double line spacing has always been mildly annoying to me. Not a big deal, but it's nice to now have an easy fix. :-)
