Post GRUB Wiki Instruction Page Messed Up
The Wiki page for GRUB is messed up: http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php?title=GRUB

An image of the GRUB screen is superimposed on top of the text, making it impossible to read the text below it. This occurs in both Firefox and Chrome.

Looks OK with Google Chrome 10.0.648.114 beta and Firefox 3.6.8. The image is to the left of the text. What browser and resolution are you using?

I'm not getting that with FF 4 in M11, but will check later when I switch back to M8.5 for the day. Thanks.

If you are using NoSquint or zoom in any other way it will be messed up.

In the two browsers I mentioned zoom does not cause a problem, Ctrl +, but I did not test with NoSquint as I do not have it installed. However, there have been other reports of NoSquint messing up web pages.

Now in M8.5, not visible in Opera of FF.

The image is large, though, so I resized it--see if that helps.

Excellent, using FF in Vista it was overlapping, now it is not.

If you click on the image you should get a larger view.
