In Chrome, news articles at:

with a leading photo and caption show the caption text overlapped with the body text. I have an image but as a new user here I'm not allowed to upload it.

It happens at that site almost always, here's an example from today:

It rarely happens elsewhere. The same link works fine in Internet Explorer so I'm guessing it's a Chrome issue.

It's been like this for many months, I read the site almost everyday. I click on "Print this Article" to get a proper look at it, but it's annoying, hope someone has the answer. Thanks in advance.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

If you include a link to the photo, I'll embed it into your question for you (or someone else will beat me to it, heheh). – Randolf Richardson Nov 17 '11 at 0:11
The issue most likely has a lot more to do with the web site designers not testing their code in the major web browsers. (When I encounter web sites that don't work properly in certain web browsers, I try to notify the webmaster; if there is a statement against support for a particular web browser, then I'll try to send a complaint to the sales/marketing departments instead.) – Randolf Richardson Nov 17 '11 at 0:14
I can't replicate this issue with Chrome 13.0.782.220 on Windows. Do you have any extensions installed that might affect layout? – Paul Nov 17 '11 at 0:15

I was able to replicate it using with Chrome 15.0.874.120 on Windows. Overlapping text

It seems to have disappeared now that I have updated to version 15.0.874.121 (released 30 minutes ago). Try updating and see if you still get the problem

Yup, that did it, thanks! I managed a re-test and manual update before Google Update would have done it for me, and sure enough that fixed the problem. I could have saved you all the trouble if I had waited one more day ... figures! BTW, glad to join here and StackOverflow, these sites are awesome. – dog44wgm Nov 17 '11 at 20:49
