    What's causing scroll bar?

    http://alton.k12.mo.us

    In IE8, in #main_content, I'm getting a horizontal scroll bar at the bottom and in Opera Mobile I have both a horizontal and a vertical scroll bar. I can't seem to figure out if it's the #sidenav, #main_content, or even the #block2 that is causing the problem....

    Any help is appreciated!

    It's coming from these lines within your first listed WP post:

    Code:
    <p>_______________________________________________________________________</p>
    There are several of these and below a certain width there is insufficient space for them. This happens in FF, IE9 as well as IE8. Remove these and the scrollbar goes.

    Holy cow, that was simple...can't believe I didn't catch that...I assumed that it would wrap like the text. I know that when the author uploads that post/document every month it's a cut/paste from an internal document, so I'll warn them about the hr's...

    Slightly pedantic, but it's not the <hr> that's the problem, that would be OK. It's the fact that this is a line full of dashes with no spaces which would allow the line to break.
