My local online newspaper has recently changed it's format and has introduced a few irritations:
- An article's comment form is restricted to 50px in height, even though you can type in a maximum of 4,000 characters, but not a big problem as I believe this can be easily fixed by changing 'resize: none' to 'resize: vertical' in the CSS declarations for that element.
- What I cant figure is this; many posters punctuate longer comments with line breaks for readability, but on submitting the line breaks get removed. But, if there are more than 11 comments to the article a button appears - "View all Comments". If clicked on, all comments appear plus any missing line breaks in the previous 10 comments. Can anyone explain why/how this behaviour happens?

Thanks for any info.
