Default Problem viewing BBforums.com on HTML Browser

Please Login to Remove!

Before the forum software was changed a few weeks ago I could view it fine using my BES provided HTML browser on my 7520. Using my NOL browser I can view the new WAP version just fine, which is the way I normally view it. However, when I try to view the HTML version of the forum on my BB browser, some of the posts are stretched out (for lack of a better description) and unreadable. In other words, the text in the posts are only 3 or 4 characters wide. What's wierd is that 1 or 2 of the posts in a thread may appear just fine while all the others are messed up.

ok, my concern in all of this is if Nextel upgrades their browser to an HTML version and I lose my WAP browser I won't be able to view the forum on my BB. Does anyone know if they are just adding a new browser and keeping the WAP browser?

Wap Versions of the site will work on any BB Browser.

The site is optimize for 1024x768, therefore it wont really run on a blackberry html browser properly.
