Is there a book or something you might recommend where one could learn about professional document writing, grammatical structure etc? inb4 "we boomers learned this stuff in kindergarten" :D (I do recall you saying something like this in your articles). Because I've never even thought about block formatting as a form of grammatical structure, even the notion of a BFC is something CSS is concerned with, not HTML. And believe it or not, they don't really teach you this in schools, at least not in the last 20 years and not where I come from. I'd like to be able to destroy my opponents by bashing professional document editing rules against their heads as efficiently as you do :) On a more serious note, it looks like, if you remove all the fancy presentational "artsy-fartsy" stuff from the web and concentrate purely on HTML, and treat a website as an actual document, then you can't really become good at it without actually being a professional document writer, which is something they most definitely don't teach you anywhere, not on MDN, not on any programming-related resource.

And while we're on the subject -- do you have a personal take on TeX/LaTeX for writing (I know you do :) )? I've been playing around with it lately for my own little math-related book; however, in my university, even though I majored in physics, they never taught us to properly use TeX, not even for writing research papers. So I started with LaTeX, and although I enjoyed being able to typeset documents in a programmatic way, overall I got highly mixed feelings about it, mostly because it's such a PITA to customize visual appearance of ToC, headings etc. in ways that LaTeX authors didn't have in mind. Plain TeX, on the other hand, lets you do whatever you want, however it is such a low-level intricate assembly language that it doesn't seem feasible to use it for typesetting real-world documents.

Completely unable to recreate that here, though I'm aware there's a problem with widths on a Google Pixel.

What make/model phone? Are you using the default browser on said phone or did you install an alternative? Is the issue unique to any specific URI?

Yes i have cleared cache, dns cache, and history.   Its the same on mobile and movile view on desktop so that would not have anything to do with cache on both devices at once i dont think. 

I found the code...

Code: [Select]
#ccdWrap {
    display: flex;
    align-items: flex-start;
    align-content: flex-start;
    padding-bottom: 1em;
}

If i uncheck the css align-content: flex-start  that corrects it, however the reason is because display flex before that has a line though it so that means there is something else taking over the display attribute,  thats why the flex-start is failing.

Im going to log off and come back on my mobile and take a snap shot of actual mobile view.  and try to share it on here.

Hi there durangod,

like GYM I have no problems with the page display.
Bear in mind, though, that I do not have a smart phone and
my testing is done with Firefox's 'Responsive Design Mode'.

Have you tried clearing your  'History' and 'Cache'?

not logged in is fine,  and logged in on desktop view is fine.   Even mobile view not logged in is fine.  Its the logged in mobile view that is messed up.

Header part looks ok but has alot of space to the right.  And then everything after that is like not wrapping or something.   Maybe DS updated the software from their website.

I dont know how to take a screen shot on my phone.  Ill google it..

Grumpy its like that on pc version of mobile as well.    Be sure you are logged in, and then use the console to view the mobile version and you should see what i mean.  :)

Here is the desktop version on mobile view, its the same on the phone
