I'm the one "vote" so far

I'm the one "vote" so far with 640 X 480 (how are you reading this?)
I tried the two other settings in the property box.
(800 X 600 and 1024 X 768)
They were too "through the looking glass" distant.

I use Firefox with buttons that adjust text size (extension add on)...

But what I really like is landing on web pages that use horizontal rules w/ html code "underneath" that automatically "word wrap" the text within the column of primary reading content. This "trick" doesn't seem as common on pages with split content menus, but I have seen it. (And these options may not be in the toolbox with your program.)

The page appears fine on my Sony Vaio notebook, which is 1280 X 800.

Bob, what adjustments can I make to also put off bifocals?

None of the above?

Using a cinemascope Powerbook (not my usual $500 machine), I clicked a monitor icon in the toolbar at the top of the screen, which reveals options of 896x600, 1152x768 and 1280x854. I appear to be in 1280 land at the moment, but I have the font size cranked up in the browser to put off the date for a bifocal prescription upgrade. I don't know how that interacts with the CSS, but so far so good.

Incidentally, the 1280x854 mode is approximately two Tennessees high by one Tennessee wide, stacked like this:

The newer PowerBooks have 16:9 aspect ratios, as opposed to the old 4:3. You can run the legacy screen resolutions but you'll get letterboxing or skewed aspects.

I've been meaning to and will try to do that when I get away from work and get home. Today is really the first day I've had a chance to surf around on KnoxViews. It really is quite awesome! Nice work!

Yes, I gathered from the poll results I was dealing with an antique monitor. Welcome to Corporate America! I'll probably take a pass on adjusting. My eyes can't handle the smaller type and I don't need to honk off the IT folks.

I'll try the page on my laptop when I get home. I don't recall having this problem there.

BTW, and again excuse my ignorance, is there a way here to save the your name, email and homepage info for commenting?

Yes. Register.

(Won't show your external home page link, though. Even though the software provides the home page field for anonymous comments, it curiously doesn't included it in the stock user profile. I had to add it, and because I added it, there's no way to display it without a lot of hacking. But I'll look into it. Seems like something it ought to do. It does at least show up on your user profile display.)

Thanks. 800 x 600. I get about the left two-thirds of the page. I noticed I can adjust resolution. Is that something I should do?

You might notice

You might notice from the poll that you are the only person so far with 800 X 600. What kind of ancient equipment do they give you guys over there, anyway? Is there a teletype still clattering away over in the corner, too? Sheesh!

You may be able to adjust it. Depends on your video card and monitor. If it is an LCD monitor, you probably want to stick with the "native" resolution or it will look grungy.

If you make it larger, your type and fonts and icons and so forth will appear smaller. If you are like me that could be hard on your eyes. In that case you need to get them to get you a bigger (proper) monitor.

Excuse my ignorance but how do I determine my monitor resolution? KnoxViews is too big on my screen, too.

For Windows, right click

For Windows, right click somewhere blank on your desktop, select properties from the dropdown, click on the settings tab, and observe the 'Sreeen resolution' under the slider on the lower left. When you say it's too big, what do you see (or not see)?

Uh...How do you tell what

Uh...How do you tell what you don't see?

Are you one of those medium people?

Funny, since this poll appeared, my monitor is too small to hold knoxviews!

Yeah, sorry, I'm playing

Yeah, sorry, I'm playing around with the layout templates. These guys all have to use CSS with fixed and floating columns now instead of nice, easily expandable and contractable tables. I don't understand any of it.
