    The Wide Wide Window

    Most threads behave well, wrapping within my IE window. Some however like <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=wrd&Number=14278&page=0&vie w=collapsed&sb=5&vc=1>This one</A>appear to default to the full width of the screen. Viewing them through my windowed browser means I have to scroll from side to side. (or view them full screen which I do not want to do because it is more difficult to follow inordinately long lines of text.)

    This occurs in flat mode, which I prefer.

    Hi Dave:
    I just successfully shrunk and expanded the width of my browser window for this thread, with appropriate word wrapping.

    Only problems I have seen are [ PRE ] [ /PRE ] sections and before Eileen changed the widths of the lines, long lines in unfortunate locations.

    Just clicked on the link. The problem is caused by the graphic on post 14547. It is 945 pixels wide.

    Now have seen a third way for "wide" threads.

    Re: The Wide Wide Window

    This usually occurs if somebody posts some code and uses the PRE tags to prevent the lines wrapping. In this case however it was somebody naughty who had posted a ridiculously large screenshot. I've replaced the huge gif with a reduced version and your screen should be OK now.

    Ouch. And ouch again.

    My apologies to anyone who was affected.

    I was trying to keep my screen shot to the minimum necessary to illustrate my point- I did not realise that it was so big.

    I won't do it again- promise!
