Did the Light theme change in the last couple of days? If so, was the sidebar text changed to italics?
It wasn't italics before. I guess I could live with the italics, but I'd like to know for sure whether the theme changed because I edited a text widget with some em markup and noticed the change to italics soon after the editing. I checked and the em tag I used was properly closed. I've since deleted the text that had the em markup but the sidebar is remaining in italics.
Even with Firebug I can't determine what is causing the italics -- admittedly I'm not expert with Firebug.
While trying to troubleshoot the italics issue, I noticed in IE6 the sidebar column is pushed down so that it begins adjacent to the bottom of the main content column :( . I don't know how long it's been like this, but perhaps if Light was changed the change introduced this IE6 layout problem.
