 To prevent potential clipping as shown in attached screenshot, (the "View
 forum >" links in two instances) the individual div heights should be a
 multiple of font height and line height properties and use the same units.

 Right now font height is 0.8rem and line height is 1.5, which may be fine,
 but the div height is 200px. The units here should match the font height,
 i.e. rem. As things stand, I suggest 10.8rem (0.8 * 1.5 * 9) is a better
 div height than an arbitrary pixel height. This accounts for variances in
 browser and user provided fonts and sizing.

 Of course the final rem height would need to be adjusted once the forum
 titles and descriptions are finalized. Further accommodation may be needed
 due to different lengths of translated content.
