Nothing has changed on Palm's end. This would imply that Wikipedia changed something that broke their page.
    Well said!

    A Web phone that can't view the web properly. You're telling me the whole web has to cater to Palm in order for our phone to work?!?

    The bug at Wikipedia is https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=26239 -- I just commented there with a fix they can apply to their page template.

    I'm in the Palm developer support group. I looked at the current page output
    for something like and tried the browser
    with a local copy of the page.

    The problem is that in your updated template, you have the lines

    <meta name = "viewport" content = "width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0;
    maximum-scale=1.0;">
    <meta name = "viewport" content = "user-scalable=0;" />

    The Palm web browser gets confused by two viewport tags. If you move the new
    "user-scalable=0" to the first line so it's just

    <meta name = "viewport" content = "width=device-width; initial-scale=1.0;
    maximum-scale=1.0;user-scalable=0;">

    then the content works again on webOS. I'll file a browser bug, but you can
    fix your end much quicker.

    Just deployed the recommendation from Ben!

    Can someone verify if it worked?

    100% fixed, thank you very much.

    Was not the end of the world, but was just frustrating to deal with this from a
    very valuable source of mobile information.

    They say on the wikipedia thread it should be fixed, but isn't on my Pre minus 1.4.5.

    [update] ooops sorry wasn't aware fixing was just minutes ago and browser caching of templates can occur on pre as well. So after closing the browser the mobike version works for me now too, thx ben.

    It works on my Pre Plus running 1.4.5, so maybe the update hasn't been pushed to all of Wikipedia's servers yet...

    Replace Palm with Microsoft Internet Explorer, and you would be looking at the internet about a year or two ago.

    I can name a whole bunch of websites that didn't work with Firefox and you must use IE.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    I tried checking the file on my Pre (/usr/lib/libWebKitLuna.so) that the iPhone spoof changes to verify this, but it appears to be a binary file or something else that I don't know how to read. I'm not sure how else I could verify it, but if it's correct it could also explain the issues with ESPN that some have reported.

    I'm going to note this issue and Wikipedia's information to the iPhone spoof thread, too, so the change-user-agent developer can look at it and adjust the patch accordingly.
    Actually reading the comments again, it appears that Wikipedia was testing using an old version of the SDK, which might explain the "Desktop" part. Anyone can confirm with the SDK?

    Ha, MTE. Wonder if Ben could drop a note over there...although honestly, the Digg team seems kinda weak or maybe it's just the people they hired to their busted api.

    That said, I do hope they make the Pre more robust. Didn't Precentral manage to break itself on the Pre by forgetting a >, " or some such?

    Digg's mobile site is affected by a issue with the CSS coding "text-rendering: optimizeLegibility". This is a bug in our WebKit implementation and will be fixed in a future update to webOS.

    Ok, mobile.nytimes.com is acting weird; if I click on any link on their mobile website, it gets forwarded to their full website. I checked on an iphone, there is no forwarding to the full website; it loads the mobile website.

    So, they are parsing the webos browser string and deciding its a desktop!

    Very frustrating.
