Hi Niklas,

As an avid mobile phone internet browser type, I think too many assumptions about resolution - or at least not providing a fallback for other types of devices - are bad.
Suppose that means I just volunteered for making an alternate stylesheet....

If you can provide us with a Drupal mobile theme, we would be happy to use it if it does work. :-)



As I understand it, the minimum resolution for viewing haiku-os.org is 1024x786. At resolutions below this, the right sidebar begins to overlap with the "Get to Know Haiku" area. It is something that I will suggest tweaking. Although, I have to admit, 800x600 is used by less than 15% of the web population (many of whom aren't the target audience). But, it always nice to be able to please all web users.

Speaking about the website, i went to the Haiku site at work. There all the machines have the impressive resolution of 800 x 600 px, and the OS that claims experience.

First i tried with Mozilla Firefox: even with the browser window maximized, the content (Get to know Haiku, Introduction, FAQ, Development resources, etc.), overlaps the right part (Downloads, test images, Special Event, Tux, etc.). When i tried with M$ Internet Explorer the right part is seen at the top, but the left and middle ones are shown below the right column. In other words, the left and middle parts are at the bottom, so they are displayed after the right part, all by itself above them.

I know very few people have this hardware or screen resolution, but it would be great to be as nicely display everywhere as when i see haiku-os.org at home. I feel a little embarrased when writing this, because it might be happening just here, but i think it is better a quick look by the professionals, than more people viewing the site "funny".

Thank you in advanced.
