I am facing a peculiar problem nowadays. Quite surprisingly, some of the characters of the last words in every line in my e-mail messages (Hotmail) get hidden in the right side of the screen and I am unable to read the same. I have to resort to guess work which works for most of the times but it is somewhat annoying. When I am unable to make a sense of the same or there are small independent words, I have to follow a different course so as to read the hidden matter. I press the reply button and the whole text becomes visible but this process is troublesome and consumes a great deal of time. Reducing the size of the text (View>Text Size>Smallest) does not help.

What may be the possible cause of this problem and how can I get rid of the same?

Thanks in anticipation.

This problem occurs even in Proz threads Jul 28, 2004

Some threads take all of a sudden more space in the breadth side than can be accommodated by the screen width. This transformation takes place from one page of the text to the next page. I got a useful hint from the Chinese modarator, who told me to try view > encoding > more > Chinese simplified (GB 2312 or something else, I forget). It helped to reduce the width of the text. But this does not hold good in other forums.

And I do not know as to why it should happen between successive pages in the same thread.
