Hi Erik,

I asked Dave Megginson if the format could be changed.

FWIW, it's not a FF/Safari problem.  That's how it looks in IE too.  The 
problem is that I wanted all the presentations to be explicitly mentioned 
on the schedule page [1], but this causes the schedule grid to have the 15 
minute blocks.  We'll see what can be done without losing that.

John,

Thanks for the details.

I attach the screenshot of the page. I really think they should fix it.

Best,
