BUG Advanced Search Option

The advanced search option has its knickers in a knot. Just a small gremlin has the two options for searching next to each other instead of one against each of the radio buttons.

They appear like this:

Search for any terms Search for all terms

Instead of this:

Search for any terms
Search for all terms

Sorry I can't put the clicky button next to them.

That sounds like an Internet Explorer 9 'feature'. If you click on the Compatibility View icon (broken rectangle) it should display normally.

Sorry I am still in the dark ages. Have IE8, with compatibility view checked because if I don't things go "funny". However this little bug is very resilient.
