Seeing Stars, or Not Seeing Stars

When you look at the three entries below, do my "star" graphics—my rating system for each nominated performance—appear correctly? Or do you see red, empty boxes, as I did today from an Internet Explorer browser at work? Or do you see red question marks, as I did from a Firefox browser on the same computer, even though my Firefox browser at home recognizes the stars just fine? Let a FlickPicker know if his jelly is making sense.

Also, imagine my surprise in discovering that my very own star has at long last broken down and posted a comment to this blog. And what occasioned this watershed decision? Not my new job. Not the mugging. No. Best Actress. Reader, it's exactly like I'm always telling him, and you: the Best Actress Oscar category is the magnetic pole around which the entire internet rotates.

Not to be contrary, but I see STARS (both full and hollow) on Firefox

Oh Blog Widow, we so need to get together for consolatory cocktails. It's like the play Tennessee forgot to write...

Hi Dr S! Hi Derek! I get stars on safari, though the filled ones are much smaller than the hollow ones for some reason.

I note that difference in the stars' size when I look at them on Safari, as well.

Hi Nick! Hi Derek!,

I'm in Firefox, on a Mac, all the stars are there and they are all the same size. So glad you two are settled in enough to get back into the online world.

Thanks, everyone, for the feedback.

If we could collect all the commenters on this post for a real-life cocktail party, I'd be a happy happy happy man.
