Browser Widget on Android

I tried your test stack but I don't think I know how to use it. The 
existing URL in the browser widget (your site) returns an error: Webpage 
not available, net::ERR_CACHE_MISS. I changed it to and got 
the same thing.

At any rate, changing the fullscreenMode re-wrapped the text in the 
widget content as needed.

When I rotated the device everything went screwy. The previously black 
and (sort of) white center graphics controls fill colors. Once rotated 
to landscape it would never go back to portrait. When changing the 
fullescreenMode (in portrait,) remnants of the previous layout were 
visible underneath the new layout.

More instruction would be good, feel free to write me privately. I 
didn't examine the scripts.
