It is reported that with Monobook skin, saving a text

what users are required to agree, is also hidden.

Fairly weird layout it produces- something very different
from what the css rules specify. I'm inclined to blame it
all on the Browser..
Does it use the css rules at all? There should be no tabs at
the top if it doesn't. If it does, a special handheld
stylesheet might be necessary for IE. You can experiment
with special rules in you user css like this:
@media handheld {
  #column-one, #p-cactions, #p-personal { position: fixed }

Comment 2 Timwi 2004-08-17 16:43:14 UTC
I'll mark this "fixed-in-cvs" because there's the Chick skin for Pocket IE now.
However, as long as the mere use of Pocket IE doesn't trigger Chick being used
as the default skin, this is arguably not a fix.
Comment 3 Gabriel Wicke 2005-01-09 12:02:28 UTC
Would Pocket IE honour @media handheld?
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-03-10 03:33:10 UTC
Removing fixed-in-cvs keyword.
Comment 5 Timo A. Hummel 2006-02-13 20:10:36 UTC
I don't think that the PocketIE (at least before Windows Mobile 2003) does
honour @media handheld, as it's part of CSS 2.0. Reference:

A (possibly good) workaround/hack would be to check the browser's identification
string and inject another stylesheet when a PocketPC IE was found.
Comment 6 David Strauss 2006-06-10 11:10:50 UTC
IE browsers generally support conditional stylesheets through an HTML/XHTML
comment hack. Monobook already uses this for many stylesheets. If PocketIE does,
then PocketIE problems can be solved the same way as desktop IE problems.
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2006-06-10 21:29:23 UTC
A few minutes of Google searching doesn't turn up any 
documentation on such. No documentation and nothing to test 
with makes it rather difficult to do anything about this...
Comment 8 Robert Leverington 2008-07-14 14:56:42 UTC
No response from person originally opening bug.  No activity since June 2006.  Difficult to reproduce due to specific software being difficult to get hold of.  Closing as INVALID.
