Hi Buck,

1) The conversion really does not know anything about how the stuff will
be displayed, that is handled by styling and stuff.  You might examine how
you have the pagebuilder.jsp set up.  Sometimes this can contribute to
things being too big.  Try making the application area part a bit too
small for most screens so that the screen has to "push" it out to fit.
That tends to get the browser to arrange things in a more compact way

2)  The cursor itself is not lost, it knows where it is ;-) Unfortunately,
at least from what I've seen, the current Windows/Web kind of default
cursor is this hard to see vertical bar and replace mode is almost unheard
of.  Maybe investigate what you could do by tinkering with the style for
input fields, I have not looked into this though.

Kind regards,

        Subject:        [WDSCI-L] WebFacing V4 look & feel questions

In the course of our testing we have come up with a few questions that I
haven't been able to answer by poking through the help.

1) The converted display doesn't 'fit' on a 1024x768
   display without scroll bars.  It does fit inside
   a 1152x864 display, but the users find the font too
   small.  Is there a way to tell the converter what
   target display resolution we want?

2) The cursor gets lost easily.  On a 5250, we can turn
   on a block cursor.  Can this be done in WebFacing?
   On the browser?
