Yep, can't get it to work on Firefox or IE.  It's weird, all of the code is in still in the page, it just doesn't show up anymore.

The header class is set to overflow:hidden. If you change that to display the overflown text, the page displays properly. I logged in just fine.

No decision for me yet!


My guess - and I'd need to look closely to confirm this - is that they are using the div.header as a container for the entire body of text. Then they probably set a height to it and, since it was supposed to flow down, the overflow hidden property screwed up the plan.

I wonder if it's worth telling them or if they're competent enough to figure out on their own.

See where it says "overflow:hidden;"? That's what is causing nothing to display. By deleting that property, the page displays.
