Just a general thought on this subject:

I notice this wide-screen effect quite often but when I point it out to others, they say "Sorry, I hadn't noticed"

This does not mean they don't check their postings -- but it probably does mean they are using a desktop or tower computer with a screen width (resolution) of 1280 or even 1600 pixels.

Many of us use laptops, with a resolution of 1024 pixels, or on older machines, even 800 pixels, so whether images or long URLs, we do notice it !!

This simple idea may help:

Click on the RootsChat PRINT button, found on the top right of the first reply on each page.
It brings up a 'Print Preview' page that contains all the replies wrapping correctly.

The images aren't displayed, though.

SS, absolutely great!
       I love tips that make life simple rather than complicate things more.

"Keeping it in the family"

     Instead of the tinyURL tip, how about this, a RootsChat solution:


Topic: Shrinking Very Long Website Links 
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,134417.0.html

Trystan has set up a similar system to tinyURL on RootsChat. 
See the above topic for more details.
