I have some links on a page. When I click (tap) one of these links, the gray box which shows where I tap is misplaced. It seems that the link is rendered higher than it should.

Is this a known Mobile Safari issue?

What do you mean by "I have some links on a page"? Is it an HTML file you're displaying in Safari, or have you published it yourself, or is it on a site you have no control over? In any case, in what context are you viewing these links? – timothymh Feb 13 '12 at 14:57
This sounds like an issue with your web page's CSS and/or how the Webkit rendering engine handles your page's CSS. In either case, I'd recommend this question be on – qsheets Feb 14 '12 at 4:00
Can you give an example of a web page? (so that others can test it out as well) – daviesgeek Feb 16 '12 at 6:21
