Right: The images on: http://www.heise.de are not scaled as they should
be, and there is probably a lot of layout missing. I don't even want to
fire up Firefox or some other big browser to look it (I so much hate
their harvesting of data) up, but it's so probably the case...

(Not a dev myself, just a very keen supporter.) But I'm almost certain,
that is a CSS issue. If you look at the Dillo homepage, and search for
CSS, and opne the link:
there is more about it.

Even some big browsers (forgot really exactly which one; was it Opera?,
as I had read about it a few months ago, and the big count on the
fingers on one hand only, hardly more, in the world) had stumbled a
little on the implementation of CSS. Go look CSS3 standard on the
and especially, Lord, there's the Level 4 now coming:

CSS Cascading and Inheritance Level 4

That must be an awful lot of work for developers to _implement_!
(I had better go quiet for a while, I've been a little too talkative in
the past week... ;-) )


P.S. I can't help elaborating a little. The dev power of the big (see
above) grows on their servise to surveillance subjects (see the
harvesting mentioned above... the STASI's of the world... the tax payers
moneys secretly flowing...). Dillo is the strongest among the honest
browsers that don't lie to users.
