REPRO:

Use the viewport meta tag to set user-scalable and use specific scale options:
<meta name="viewport" content="user-scalable=false; initial-scale=1.0;maximum-scale:1.0;minimum-scale:1.0" />

For more accurate repro, have 6-12 divs of content that have "float:left;" as part of the style such that they would float around each other given more space (test in Safari for that)

ACTUAL:

When switching from portrait to landscape, iPhoney zooms in by scaling up instead of respecting the maximum-scale attribute

EXPECTED:

No scaling such that more divs appear on the screen on a specific horizontal line.

EXAMPLE:

    I agree, not supporting the iphone viewport is a major mis-step by iPhoney. I love iPhoney, but find it essentially useless for previewing iPhone websites because, if they are properly handling rotation, then they are using viewports which iPhoney is ignoring.
