Hi:

I can get ESPN's PDA-friendly page to load great on ISilo -- works perfectly, except fonts are either too big (headlines) or too small (body text).

When I load the same link into Handstory, the front-page photo doesn't appear, and all the links click back to the same page. So it's basically useless on Handstory.

Here's the link:
http://wirelessproxy.espn.go.com/espn/wireless/html/pocketpc

With both applications, link depth is set to 2.

Thanks!

I found a slightly different link...

http://proxy.espn.go.com/wireless/espn/html/pocketpc

Now at least the links work, but I still don't get the graphics. Not a big deal, but if anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it.

The graphics are located on a different server (starwave.com). Someone else asked a similar question (http://www.turcic.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=4099#post4099) for iSiloX - maybe HandStory handles it similarily ?!

HandStory cannot go offsite for any link...so if the graphics are elsewhere, HS won't load them. HS will only load pages/graphics that are on the base server of the page you're loading. Rumor is that they'll change this in version 3 (which was also rumored to be 4th qtr this year), but we'll see.
