Text wrapping is normally left in the hands of the web browser as opposed to the forum software.

I do find it annoying however when someone types a really long word and creates a horizontal scroll bar for the rest to deal with.

I'll have a look into it and see if there's something that we can do.

Hey, I edited my post for that reason. :P

But what I do see is a vertical scroll bar inside the window on the bottom right of screen, its not actually part of the window boarder tho, more part of what I'm viewing??? If this makes any sense at all....

No window at the bottom right fooel, I said inside the window i.e Explorer or Firefox browser window, at the bottom right is where the scroll is appearing. Its not part of the window boarder, but actually inside it. Its like the scroll next to the topic review part down the bottom when your typing a post. But its on the main melb beats forum section and only appears randomly... :?

The Mac OS -9- massive; at that. =)

Are you using the latest version of IE for OS 9? I'm guessing your problem is very specific to IE on OS 9; with the way it renders HTML.

I've tested out this site in a few browsers on my mac at home (OS X) and it works a treat.

Netscape sux in comparison for our intranet, this is the only prob with IE, so I'll deal with it I spose, cheers for the response. :D
