I was thinking about bigger screens, so they could somehow center the whole content so aBy `text div', you mean the div with the main docs, right? If you would like the maximum line width to be 80em, what sort of page layout would you propose? I am having trouble visualizing how this would work.
fixed width, where the content has a fixed max width and the contents also. Min width
should of course change according to the resolution so you don't have to scroll horizontally.
What if we set the max width in the hardcoded scripts smaller?I'll consider your suggestion for the blockquoted sections. I don't think it's possible to have the musical examples adjust to the page width, since the maximum widths are hardcoded when the docs are compiled.
I also discovered afterwards already mentioned issures with the appendices in NR:
eg the feta font list is a picture 600px wide so it would render bad in lower resolutions.
It was also mentioned that blind people don't understand the picture.
niceThe scrollbars: I think the scrollbar for the contents div should always be on, don't remember how to achive this, something like setting height to 101%? So there won't be the switch when some subsections get opened.This is a very interesting suggestion! I'll think about it.
Ok, so that's the reason, indeed under Firefox 3 it doesn't happen. Happy to switch this year, hopefully...On my 1024x768 there is also a scrollbar on the bottom but it is useless because it is always 100% long. Does this have to be there? On this small screen it eats up a relatively big space.Are you using Firefox 2 (or a browser that uses Gecko 1.8)? Because this is a known issue for those browsers.
