See attached pic. I've noticed Ron's posts are sometimes hard to read due to borked formatting. This is on my iPad.

I believe this is a combination of Ron using manual line returns when he types and the narrower format in portrait view. What does it look like when you turn it to landscape? Edit: I imagine it looks the same in landscape. Switch to the mobile view, which wipes out the sidebar ads, and you'll see how it should look.

What solved that for me was changing the theme to the basic one, that lets the topics go side to side without having to do the mobile version.

Ron has a MAC and I have a microsoft PC. For text files, there is an option "Format Word Wrap on or off. With is "on" and I move the text  to a reply - I get the same sort of things like Ron's post- IF I turn the word wrap OFF and  move the text for a reply - it looks ok.

Ron manually line breaks his text to a custom length(has been forever) for inexplicable reason known only to him :)

Problem is, for me, the site design on the iPad doesn't support his custom formatting and its difficult to read.

No difference in landscape mode. It's exactly the same proportions, but zoomed in.
