Honestly?  Do we really need to bend over backwards to support a
browser that's about a decade old?  If it's a minor fix like the
problems in CSS or your HTML you mentioned in the other thread, sweet,

If DM means fixed width, I strongly disagree.  My biggest pet-peeve

monitor capable of spreading my text out over 24 inches so that some
page programmer can dictate to me that I get 800 pixels wide or 1024
wide worth of used real estate and am forced to scroll for the rest of

have to scroll at all.  On the other hand, having it display
beautifully on my iPhone right now makes me happy.  If you force it to
be x > 240px wide, then I'm ruined on there, being forced to scroll
all over the place in different directions to get to content that I
can see just fine now.  Leave it the way it is, please, and don't make
me scroll vertically on my desktop and horizontally on my handheld,
when I don't have to scroll either direction on either one at the
