Which page is this from? Looking at nilsas' from Bryne user profile and beer ratings | RateBeer.com and it looks to render those styles correctly?

I’m trying to find which page exactly he is referring too, but I found in the meantime that each page loading with a different time period selected with the SELECT TIME option have the characters bug.
