Browser formatting woes

I have a few SL2 courses where I center a reference to a score (number) variable in a circle shape as a score-keeping mechanism.  Looks perfectly centered in preview. Pretty common stuff. 

I have noticed that the centering (or not centering) of references like this shows differently in Firefox and IE (YUCK!) than in Chrome (YES! HOW IT PREVIEWED!). Functional, yes, but no longer centered.   

I always include HTML5 output when publishing. Anyone have ideas for working around this when adding score-keeping? I really don't want to have to create a ton of graphics and link the number variable to the showing of the corresponding graphic :( to lock it in place, but may need to resort to that!

Hello Anne - I created a sample to see if I would be able to replicate, and I do see the behavior you are reporting.

I will get this reported and I did want to let you know that it seems to look better within a shape with text vs captions as you can see below (HTML5 on the left and HTML on the right):

Hopefully that assists you in the meantime.
