Today there seems to be two options available on Yahoo! at every strike price, every expiration. Here is a MSFT example:

http://finance.yahoo.com/q/op?s=MSFT&m=2012-07

They differ in that the option name may have either two or three zeros following the dollar strike value. i.e.

There are two July $30 calls listed as:

MSFT120721C0003000
MSFT120721C00030000

The bid/ask prices on the second series are about 12 cents higher.

Also true for most other tickers I plug in. Is this a quirk at Yahoo today, or has something strange happenned (or both)?
