Colin and Brahmanathaswami:
When this discussion topic is finally resolved, it would be wonderful and extremely useful if a summaryof the best practice, with comments on implementation consequences,  was posted somewhere. This is an important issue and will save the rest of us who haven’t faced this issue yet, a lot of time.

Best,
Bill

For one game though it was better to do the noBorder compromise, so that it wasn’t geared towards either wider or not so wide devices. Suggesting noBorder for you was after asking questions about whether you could work in the same way.
