#3400 CSS: New SlashCode is illegible on Treo 650

Slash 2.5/3.0

SlashCode's CSS is rendered as a gigantic single-column
row, making it completely illegible on a Treo 650.

To test this, you'll need to use the "PluggedIn" Treo
650 emulator.

You can download a copy from http://pluggedin.palmone.com/

You'll need to register (it's free); then you can go to
to download the latest Treo Simulator for CDMA.

Start it up in Windows. It takes a while to start up;
use the numeric keypad (numlock OFF) and the mouse to

To access the web, you'll need to redirect NetLib calls
to the host TCP/IP. Right-click in the Simulator's
taskbar, then use the Settings -> Communication menu,
and click on "Redirect NetLib Calls to Host TCP/IP".

OK, you're now ready to reproduce the bug. Click on
the Applications button and scroll down to the "Web"
application. (You can't go to the home page,
vision.sprintpcs.com, because this is not a real Treo.)
But you can go to slashcode.com. It will take a while
to load up and redraw, but once it does, the bug will
finally be reproduced.

I've attached a screenshot below. (I would have
attached the simulator itself, but it's only legal to
download it directly from PluggedIn.)

    Since none of us run Windows it's going to be hard to follow those 47 steps
    to get the Treo emulator running.

    I'd care a lot more about this and maybe even work on fixing it, if Palm
    sent me a free Treo. Contact information available upon request!

    Or if you want to fiddle around with our HTML and CSS, find the bug, and
    tell us what we have to fix to make it work, that'd be excellent too.
