I haven't seen any responses yet -- just an FYI -- it's not specific to you. I'm seeing it too. I haven't found a solution to the issue, but it is most definitely a repeatable issue. I've tried it on 3 different computers and they're all displaying the same behavior.

I could reproduce the problem on .NET 1.1 SP1, but not resolve it.

Just me (Sir to you)

I figured out that if you add a pipe symbol to the end, it works perfectly (eg. HeaderText = "Blah|"). The pipe is perfectly obscured by the gridline, and the text itself is OK.

I got this from a guy who suggested doing the same with a period on The period looks crappy, but the pipe is OK.
