Hi Erich,

Chrome and Firefox show the text in different sizes. I use Ubuntu/MATE,
and I saw a Ubuntu/Unity screen clip, and it was different as well.

So, it looks like if you have two lines of text in the green buttons,
then there may be problems with the text size pushing the Torrent and
Info "text" off the button where it is placed for the "placement" of the
link to those options.

Never noticed it before, till I was emailed something about it. As I
stated, the text size works fine for my Firefox setup, but it seems not
to work for Unity's setup or Chrome's.

Here is a clip of what the differences are with Firefox and Chrome.

How hard would it be to define specifically to be, say " font-size:
10pt;"instead of something that relies on what the browser/system has
set for the "h2" size? I know some people who play with the browser
"defaults" and then they complain that the sites look wrong to them. I
had to create styles for each "font size" that was used in some of the
web site projects I did, just to get them to look the same in both
Firefox and IE. Now that Chrome is in the "mix" and it seems to define
its "default" text sizes different than FF, itmay make sense to
dosomething to make sure the font/text size is what the web designers
want it to look like instead of what the individual browsers think is best.

As I stated, I never saw a problem until someone asked me the other day.
I did not know there was an issue. Now I see what they see when I
display the page in Chrome.

Actually, my FF shows the same as the Chrome in your example. I have not modded my FF.

I like the look on your FF version, and as far as the Deutsch, the title just needs to separate the "allplatforms" to "all-platforms" and IMO it would work just like the EN DVD title.

I don't think the fix you suggested would work. You suggested for example that there be a better description in the text above the buttons. However, the text is generic and is worded to fit the direct download of LibreOffice v.x.x.x.x and not the DVD's.

I think the simplest fix would be to shorten the DVD title to a reasonable length.

Is there a way for you to tell us a number of allowable characters that would fit before it spills out of the button? If I counted right, the EN DVD title is 67 characters long. Perhaps keeping it to 45 characters long would allow enough "just in case" spaces just in case some users did mod their browsers.

For example, as it stands now, if we were to keep to 45 characters-long, the present title would end as "LO-4.0.0_English-NA-DVD_ALL-Plaforms_Multi-L" You would have to rework your title to fit that length. For example you could rename it as: "LibOx-4.0.0_English_NA-DVD_AllPlatforms-Lang" =45 characters with no mention of extras, or v.1.ISO <--no really sure if you need this ISO number here, it's really for your own information.


The ".iso" maybe there since the text is the exact file namethat is picked up by the page system, maybe. . . .

I have no problem making the 3.6.6 and 4.0.1 version smaller names.

instead of

What would be nice it having a spot/box where there is a description of what the file is, so we can shorten the file name all we want but can have the text description stating which OSs and Language packs included, plus what language the DVD text is in, English, German, Spanish, French, etc., etc., with all you need to know about what you are downloading without guessing from the file name itself.
