Try resizing and moving the windows so you can see both at the same time. I think that works best. But then you might as well switch to the version with frames. :-)

Huh. That does seem to happen for me (with Netscape 4.5 on a Macintosh)...

I agree, scrolling horizotally is for the birds. But this problem disappeared with this version (4.5) of Netscape's browser. It's their "editor", after all, not mine. Now the lines in the box "wrap" automatically, and my days of horizontal scrolling are over. :-)
