Just a small glitch.
Fetching http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dzogchen a JPEG rendered OK but a
PNG didn't, initially. A second attempt at fetching and a re-load, all
JPEG's and PNG's appeared to render successfully.

On a forum page I noticed that a horizontal scroll bar "embedded"
in the page is covering the last line of text of the frame.
Unfortunately I can' view the source to see what it is or post it here.
While work is being done on textareas maybe it is a good time to raise this again ?
When typing in a textarea, each key press causes a refresh of the entire textarea.
You may not notice this on a fast cpu but on a 68060 it is very noticeable
and the more text there is, the slower it gets.
Could this be improved by just refreshing the current line ?
