Would you also be willing to try posting here? I got an error message from their
webserver complaining about a form field that needs to be fixed but it didn't highlight and
offending field and I hadn't entered anything so I think it was having a problem with cookies,
you need to login and click "start a new topic" from here,
my custom browser failed in the same way and I was trying to test cookies and post methods.

[ your editor is complaining about invalid html in my message, like duh that is what I'm trying to illsutrate
and I thought the stuff I typed into the editor was supposed to be taken as text.
Anyway, it looks like the content was preserved, I have no idea what it is upset about.
The ncbi link may work now, at least the home page is coming up on my BB and this didn;t seem to happen before.
The yahoo link, however, seems to behave similarly on curl and I'm assuming there is some test to avoid automated
posting. Is there some known feature on the BB browser that may be used as such a test. I'm digging into their
JS right now but it doesn't seem to be just a cookie issue as AFAIK curl cookies work fine.
If you can spot some trick in the html you get from hitting "start new topic" here or on some other board,
it would be appreciated.
$ curl -s -S --anyauth --user-agent "$u" -b yahoo_cook -k -L "$uxx" > xxx.html
$ more xxx.html | sed -e 's/</\n</g' | grep -B 2 -A 2 -i oops
</font> Please correct the fields in red below.

I'm using a Curve 8310, v126.96.36.199 (Platform 188.8.131.52)
I've got a simple page that I've run through validator successfully. If I view it through the browser, it renders properly. If I view it as an email attachment, the table columns stack vertically rather than being displayed horizontally. Is this normal?

There are multiple views supported by the BlackBerry Browser. The Mobile View or Column View do not support horizontal scrolling. These views wrap a page so that it does not exceed the width of the BlackBerry screen. This is the view used when viewing email attachments or HTML email.
The BlackBerry Browser also supports Desktop View or Page View, which does support horizontal scrolling and can display an HTML page wider than the BlackBerry screen. A user can switch between these views when using the BlackBerry Browser, but not from within the Messages application.
