    Scrolling required again with Netscape

    Well, it's happened again. When I open some threads in Netscape, flat view, the print is too large to fit on the screen & scrolling is required.

    For example, see Word thread starting 1/17 called "Document Corruption". Anyone else having trouble with Netscape viewing messages?

    There's nothing wrong. The culprit is this message - he's used Pre tags to stop the quoted code from being reformatted.

    Interesting. Gotta tell Andrew to start using those line continuation characters in his code.[img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    But Phil, how big have you got your display font? - when I view that message, it all fits on my screen (using IE5).[img]/w3timages/icons/thinks.gif[/img]

    Ian, Gary -- be nice! Some of us (like me) don't see as well as others, and have our forum fonts set at 1 or 2 (to enlarge a couple points). I've run into a lot of Andrew's codes that have caused me to have to scroll back and forth... but I've always thought they were worth it... uh, okay, usually. [img]/w3timages/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Hi Karen:

    I actually know what you mean. I am using 800x600 on 17" monitor and I wear computer/reading glasses when I am working on computer (ok, most of the time).

    I had multi-focals but found they were a literal pain in the neck after a while.

    Re: Scrolling required again with Netscape

    Hi Everyone:

    I can see the screen without scrolling in IE5.5. I use Netscape 4.75 with size 12TNR & Courier fonts. Although, in this Lounge, my display preferences are set to Verdanna fonts & use the default font size. I have a 17" monitor with the display set to 1024x768. That really should be wide enough.

    I noticed that with Anndrew's message, it really doesn't matter whether I enable style sheets or not.

    Eileen pointed out to me that I should stop switching back & forth between Netscape & IE. Since my email notifications to Netscape, & I can click & go directly to a message, I've decided to stick with Netscape as much as possible.

    I've learned that no matter how good something is fixed, I can find a way to break it.[img]/w3timages/icons/grin.gif[/img][img]/w3timages/icons/devil.gif[/img]

    Oh boy, do I know that feeling! I still can't figure out what I did to break my lovingly created TagPanel on the Preview your Post screen...
