Most Chitika Squares and Rectangles Do Not Display Properly

    I joined Chitika because I was sent there by YPN.
    I have several issues with Chitika, but the messed up ad formatting is the biggest issue (after one day).
    Typical AdSense ad, MS ad and Yahoo ad -

    Title

    Here is the way Chitika displays medium squares and rectangles (both PC and Mac, all 3 IE, Firefox and Safari) -
    ----------
    Title
    (space in wrong place)
    Description
    Link URL
    Title

    The ONLY medium square / rectangle that displays properly is the 300x250.
    IMHO, Chitika ads which do NOT display properly are - 336x280, 250x250, 200x200, 180x300, 180x150, and the 160x160.

    However, the 300x250 has a different problem. If the title is longer than 1/2 the width of the ad, it gets truncated at about the 60% point of the width. This appears to happen with any font selected. Has anyone else encountered this problem, and if so, how did you solve it? Thanks for your help.
