Oh my. I just checked that out and it looks ridiculous. I seem to have
accidentally messed with the mobile styling at some point, should be easy to get
it to behave sensibly again though.

Hmm. That sounds non-ideal. I think we can play around with the styling for this
though, e.g. increase the line height, add a margin to offset, etc.
