Italicization to control CSS width

Please ignore this entry. This sentence is italicized because of CSS problems in Internet Explorer 5+. Italicized blocks of text which take up more than a line tend to add 1px of width to CSS boxes in IE browsers only. I have adjusted my style sheets to compensate for this, but it means I need to make sure that there is at least one long italics entry per week in my weblog. That is all. Thank you. You look very nice today.
