AndyPierce: Sensei's on mobile phone (2008-07-23 21:14) [#4907]

When I try to read Sensei's Library using the Opera-Mini browser on a Samsung phone (Sprint), all of the web pages' text displays with only one work on each line.

So
all
of
the
pages
look
very
long
and
narrow,
kind
of
like
this.

Can Sensei's be made to not behave this way? Is this a "feature" arising from the neat style-sheet formatting of the library? It seems unique to the pages of Sensei's.

Andy, I need a little bit more information.

What exactly do you see on the screen?

Is the yellow left hand bar there? Is it taking too much space and thus leaves no room for the content?

Is there anything else I should know?

I'm also having this issue on a Nokia X3-02 with Opera Mini 5.0.

OP5 has the option "Mobile view" to "reflow" pages.

If set to "Off", words on pages are broken word-wise as described by Andy; it's as if there is a property in the SL pages/website that makes the browser decide it has to break lines at word level so that lines can be shown correctly. I suspect some HTML property in SL pages needs to be changed in order to resolve this issue.

Pages from a site such as goproblems.com do not suffer this: the page is shown completely (but with an unreadably small font, and one has to zoom in to read the text normally).

If set to "On", pages are reflown and read correctly (without the yellow stuff to the left).

Second issue: in-line moves do not seem to render (eg the comment on page JGroup, diagram "White kills" does not show the (int this ase exclusively) white moves in the text). Anyone else the same problem?

I couldn't install Opera 6 yet due to quirks in the X3-02; I had it installed before turning it in for repair, they did something with it and now I can't install Op6 %$#&@!#*!; I'm not sure but I think Op6 had the same problem.

The effect can be seen on a Mac laptop using either FireFox or Safari if you resize the window to be narrow. My guess is that a minimum window width (in pixels) needs to be specified so the text does not reflow but rather uses a scroll-bar to move the visible window around the page.
