  13. I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your website. It appears as though some of the written text within your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a problem with my internet browser because I've had this happen before.
