On my browser, the image hides up the beginning of the letter "W" on "Word of the day". I shrank it to 52px instead of 62 px, and that problem was solved, see User:Keene/Sandbox. --Keene 03:01, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

What is 'my browser' ? My tests show no problems, no matter how I play with window size. Robert Ullmann 15:08, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Note that on IE 6, it looks crappy because IE can't display the image properly (you are seeing a white background over the box border? the image background is transparent.) Look at it in Firefox. Robert Ullmann 15:15, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Some users don't have that option. If I'm at work, I have to use IE6. Many American schools are using IE6 because updating would cost money. If there is a problem with display in IE6, then it affects a large fraction of our users. --EncycloPetey 17:13, 2 January 2008 (UTC)
Keene is right, I can't make out a single letter of today's (apparently short) WOTD :

we need at last one empty line in between (I'm working on a network, using the non-specified standard browser for Word) Matricularius 11:17, 28 February 2008 (UTC)

Redlink or no redlink[edit]

Would it make sense to put an #ifexist function around the audio so that it doesn't show up unless an audio file exists? --Yair rand 00:46, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Date[edit]

"Word of the day for December 28"

  1. At least in Europe we have the year 2014, not the year 28 (AD), and I think one shouldn't care about uncommon US-American and e.g. Muslim year numbering.
  2. The word of which december day is it? At least the number of the day should be added, though the day (today: Sunday) could be added, too.

So, how about "28 December 2014" or "Sunday, 28 December 2014" or better "28 December 2014 (Sunday)"?
BTW: The second version would also be similar to www.bbc.co.uk ("Sunday, 28 December") & www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/programmes/schedules/fm ("Sunday 28 December 2014"). -IP, 11:14, 28 December 2014 (UTC)
