Blog Excerpts Cut Off

Hi, I'm setting up a site with a customized theme. I'm running into an issue on the blog page where the excerpt of a specific post is getting cut off (see the screen shot below, just above the Read More | Add Comment links). I use the Firebug extension in Firefox, but haven't been able to figure out where in the CSS the size of the excerpt box is controlled.

Is there a way to fix it? Ideally, I'd like to make it just stretch to whatever the size of the post is.

I'm using a customized version of the Transparent Horizontal theme.

        Denys, that worked perfectly. Thank you so much for your help! That one was driving me crazy.

        You would have to check in your basic.css for something similar to:

        #idBlogPageContainer #idBlogSummaryContainer #idBlogPostListContainer DIV.boxBodyContentContainer
        {
        overflow: hidden;
        height: expression(this.scrollHeight> 140 ? "140px": "auto");
        }

        html>body #idBlogPageContainer #idBlogSummaryContainer #idBlogPostListContainer DIV.boxBodyContentContainer
        {
        height: auto;
        max-height: 140px;
        }

        and then adjust 140px to as needed.
