In one case I was able to collect some stats. One useragent string
from an affected browser was:
4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)
About IE gave the following version:
I'm starting to think that the issue is related to local preferences
such as preferred font size and/or local stylesheets or scrollwheel
zooming, and I'd prefer not to try overriding a user's local
preferences. So I'm considering a hackity hack hack solution like a
transparent spacer gif to force a minimum width on the <div>. not
elegant, but I think it would work.
Any other thoughts on what's going on here? I'm coming close to
writing it off as a user-specific settings issue, but contrary
opinions or thoughts are welcome.
Thanks for everyone's time on this.
