John <mail(a)JohnWoodhouse.plus.com> enlightened us thusly:
However, later down in the code (line 160) there's a td
the inner column, which is forcing it to be very wide. I assume NetSurf
is interpreting this correctly and allowing it to overrule the outer
table width="100%" of the page, hence the horizontal scroll bar.
I would say that NetSurf is acting correctly, but correct action in
case of contradictory HTML is possibly subjective anyway.
Hadn't spotted that. Thanks for pointing it out.
Armed with this information, I have just had a word with those responsible.
The pages were apparently created on a Mac using Dreamweaver software. The
chap I spoke to admitted that it does seem odd specifying a width of 2000
and he will "look into it" - it seems the site was created as a freebie so
done in a rush.
Hopefully things will be changed for the better now.
Thanks to all for the info.
