To MathGroup Responders (thanks, btw):

My response is late because I reinstalled everything on my computer
since my last post... Nobody seems to have experienced the same
problem I had. I reproduced it again after the reinstall, though it
isn't as bad as it was before. The problem is that the fraction line
is broken. To prove to you that I am not (too) crazy, I put
screenshots on my website. The first one was taken before I changed
Windows' graphics settings around to see if that made a difference
(bit depth, performance options, etc):

What would cause this?

I have also seen it in some exported PDFs before...
