If you conduct a search on any Google Custom Search Engine, such as ours, you will see that the page numbers, which aid the searcher to the next page of search results, are squeezed together. Here is a screen capture of those page numbers:

Google Custom Search Engine Pages Squeeze

There are many Google Custom Search Engine users who are upset with this uncontrollable formatting issue. You can read all the complaints at the Google Custom Search Engine Help thread. As you can see, many webmasters, publishers and searchers are a bit upset with this. I, personally, don't care too much - you can still use it, it just doesn't look pretty.

Update: Soon after we posted this, a Googler confirmed the bug in the forum and then soon after that, it was fixed. The Googler said:

The squished-together page numbers is indeed an issue on our end, and we're working on fixing this. Thanks for reporting the issue, and for your patience - I can't say for sure when this will be resolved, but it should be in the next day or so.
