I did that, thanks for the tip. I believe it's not only 100% since I was using

It was doing an awful score, so many errors.. I prefered to follow Tony's tip on
removing the DOC type declaration altogether.

After those 2 things, it works perfectly, I even set the width to 98% instead of
90%, so it's nicer.
I don't which of the two made it work since I did them at the same time, I
already spent too much time on this phorum 3.3.1a upgrade :-(

http://www.toulonparadise.com  FORUM works good now thanks to evolters !

But I suspect the one to be the scrolling="yes" tip since I had no scrolling
parameter when it wasn't working.

Thank you.
