If you have seen some strangely cut off ‘W’ than you know what is all about.

Description of the bug: If you have some word ending with ‘w’, you are using Verdana font-family, font-size 10px, your words are in table and most of all you are using Internet Explorer with your Cleartype turned on – you get this:

No problem

Have you seen this one?
When you have ClearType turned off and view a website in IE (seen in 6, not sure about 7), the first capital W has the left side cut off.
You can see it here

Not very handy, and I can’t find a solution so far.

just checked it out. The one solution that i can suggest is changing font size if suitable also it strongly suggested to keep your style definitions in external file that way the browser will be able to cache it.
