    Is there a way to stop the sidebar text widget wrapping lines in the middle of words, please? It breaks common words in strange places, such as se-cond and photogra-phy.

    ah ...

    I don't have opera or any others installed

    these all on Windows 7

    I see.

    You could try this CSS;

    /* WARNING: Dirty inline-block style incoming! */
    .textwidget p b {
     display: inline-block;
    }

    Or this;

    .textwidget p b {
     display: block;
     float: left;
     margin-right: 5px;
    }

    Do you know where to put this CSS?

    Thanks Andrew!
    Its a while since I messed around with CSS, but I should be able to find it without too much trouble! I'll leave it until I have a few more things to fix ... its a new site so there'll be other things to change later on!
    :)
