The type on the list is really weird, Tim. It seems to be in some kind of chart or table (there are horizontal and vertical lines), and the longer (first) lines of type in the last few defs are just chopped off, instead of wrapping to the next line. ALL of the defs, even short ones, seem to split into two lines "A male gypsy" on one line, "dancer" on the next. And each number seems to be between the first and second line of its def.

At least, that's how it looks here in my Tbird. Never seen anything like it before.

Anyone else see anything odd?

Dodi,

As you observe, the longer lines do not wrap well in the table, which
seems to keep its size regardless of window width. I can see them by
expanding my TBird window to epic proportions because I have a
super-wide monitor. I suspect shrinking the font to the point you
needed a magnifying glass might work as well, but I prefer the large
font edition.

I can see the table cell boundaries by hovering my mouse over it....
looks like the longer defs go through column Q.

Tim's repost wraps properly at the window border and the rubble between
walls def is much more readable. :)

5 is suspiciously obvious and I'd like to know if there's a word for 15
so I can start using it to refer to the trio of candidates I'll be
hearing way too much of for the next few months.

And just shaking my head with amusement at 17.

The type on the list is really weird, Tim. It seems to be in some kind of chart or table (there are horizontal and vertical lines), and the longer (first) lines of type in the last few defs are just chopped off, instead of wrapping to the next line. ALL of the defs, even short ones, seem to split into two lines "A male gypsy" on one line, "dancer" on the next. And each number seems to be between the first and second line of its def.

At least, that's how it looks here in my Tbird. Never seen anything like it before.

This is better. And I can now delete what I don't want to vote for (including the correct definition, I'm sure!), which I was unable to do with the original post.


11. A carved teak bench on which Indonesian tribal leaders sit during ceremonies.

Formatting of the list of definitions was really odd, at least as shown
on my end in Thunderbird.

I vote for the fashion term which I think is 7, and the teak bench,

17 and 18 please



Steve Graham

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail."

Ralph Waldo Emerson




17.

[13th Cent.] a mixture of tree branches and stones, which could be doused with oil and set aflame, used to fill the space between the outer and inner faces of a fortification wall.


18.

A tetragonal silicate of calcium and aluminium, occurring as honey-yellow crystals in igneous and metamorphic rocks and many slags. Also: any of a group of related minerals which includes this species, having the general formula A2BZSiO7 (where A = Na or Ca, B = Al, Be, Mg, or Zn, and Z = Al or Si).

Not having the faintest notion, I'll go with the gypsies:

&nbsp;1.&nbsp;A male gypsy dancer.

and

14. [Music.] A kind of shawm similar to the Turkish _zurna_, introduced into Macedonia and neighbouring Balkan states by Romany peoples.
