If it's the first, how important is it to make it smaller than that?
interesting point - it didn't even occur to me, because when i hit the 'restore down' button (while ie is maximized), it restored down to a size where the distortion was already occuring.
but yes, you're right - it will re-size down to a certain point, and that point is, i think, whatever the minimum pixel width is set for posts via vbulletin / whatever settings you guys have.
starting from 'maximized' size (but not via the maximize button, thereby in a state of 'restore down'), here's a pictorial explanation:
it's fine at about 10% narrower than maximized:
and at 20% narrower:
up to about 25% narrower:
and then starts clipping just after that 25% shown above, here is what it looks as of about 30% narrower than maximum:
is it important? i dunno. i, and most people, read things maximized, i think. beyond that, i'm not sure you can have it consistently clip to fit the size of the window, indefinitely
... for instance, i wouldn't expect it to format to fit-to-size, when the window is only 10 or 20% of the normal full width.
maybe just make it so it'll re-format at a little narrower size. i think many users' windows 'restore down' to a size (which is often 'inherited' by the last site that popped up, i think a common size there is about 640 or so pixels) that is narrower than where fvc starts clipping...?
