Interesting.  On my G3 Mac (Mac OS 9.1), Netscape Communicator 4.76
renders the page just fine, but Internet Explorer:mac 5.1 doesn't.
Looking at the source code for the page, I see:

   <TD VALIGN=TOP>[<A HREF=".../pgsql-php">archives</A>]</TD>
   <TD VALIGN=TOP>[<A HREF=".../pgsql-sql">archives</A>] </TD>
                                                        ^

The space after the closing bracket causes "[archives] " to be wider
than "[archives]".  It appears that IE sets the column's width on the
first instance ("[archives]"), then decides that the last instance
needs to be wrapped.  In summary, the space should be removed.


On a related topic, I would like to suggest that you install links in
each of the mailing list subscription pages

   http://www7.us.postgresql.org/users-lounge/index.html
   http://developer.postgresql.org/maillist.php

pointing across to the other page.  I may not be the only person who
didn't know that there was another area for mailing list administration.
