    I have some simple HTML content in a file that the tablet doe snot render at all correctly (it wraps the content about 1/2 way along the width of the page when in landscape mode) no other browser does this.

    Does any one have a solution for this, is there some update from Samsung that sorts it out?

    See below for HTML:


    <!DOCTYPE HTML>
    <html lang="en">
    <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <title>Error</title>
    </head>

    Welcome to the forum

    2 suggestions. Try another browser and if that doesn't help make certain the browser you are using is set to request desktop mode. If you want the page to display in mobile mode it will require some additional coding.

    Hi,

    Almost every other browsers I've tried actually works great. That's the point of the question really.

    Customers use the Galaxy Tab and they use the browser that comes with it, they expect to be able to see the text and more importantly click on buttons (which actually get rendered lower than the place on the layout where the click is recognised - because the rendered content has been shunted by the layout engine, but the internal references location are where the content should be and have not been updated because the content wrapped incorrectly).
