screen wrap ?????

The browser I use is Safari on my Apple and having to scroll the screen sideways these days is a real pain. Is it just me and my browser or are others experincing this also ?

Hi guys,
It looks like it's a little glitch with safari, I don't have access to a mac myself, so I could do with a bit more detail to help me sort this for rob.

Which pages are failing to wrap, and by how much? (a screenshot might be the easiest way to describe the prob)

I'm not sure if this is the right place to say this, but for a quality free browser, check out mozilla firefox, it has full CSS/PNG compatability (important for webdesign)/pop-up blocker, and in my eyes beats the proverbial out of the competitors. just a little heads-up, Not sure if it's mac compatible.

if it's not the right place, delete this message.

For anyone who cares why this happened, in the footer, where the new list of links are, I've added a little code to prevent a single link from being wrapped over two lines, so each link is encased in a little span tag with a no wrap permission. unfortunalty it seems that safari will not wrap between the two tags if there is no specific character between the two span tags. I just moved the space after the | chars outside the spans so there is somewhere that safari can break it up.

Technically it's a bug in safari, but that's the nature of web browsers it seems, all with thier own little paculiarites to make my life that little more complex :-)

Just shout up if anyone's still having problems!
