From what I've seen, it's way more than that one page: many pages exhibit the same behavior, although it appears to me that the affected pages are random, so I wouldn't know what's causing it. I'm going to take a wild, potentially inaccurate guess that it has to do with MediaWiki because Nathaniel mentioned it when I was asking about the broken navigation box that I used to find patterns with missing parameters, but it could very well be something else I'm not considering.

The folks at Wikipedia are changing the software frenetically. The styles and scripts are now loaded after the actual page content as per the HTML/CSS separation principle. You need to write a stylesheet.

Whoa, sorry about this guys -- I have no idea what happened yet. I didn't change any of the LifeWiki software, so I'm not sure what suddenly changed to cause this.

Edit: I'll do another MediaWiki upgrade soon, which should resolve this issue.
