I would be very grateful if someone with access to the new iPad2 could confirm whether the [Glossary] tab in the jsFiddle link here is truncated around the letter -G- or -H- or is being completely rendered, i.e. all the way to the letter -Y-.
On the original iPad the content is getting truncated.

I was talking about the document that is rendered in the Glossary tab. The glossary is being truncated at the letter -H- (i.e. at the rubric for words beginning with the letter 'h').

I had an opportunity to test this out at the Apple store recently, and the iPad2 renders the documents in the tabs correctly, i.e. without truncating their content (cutting them off at the bottom) just as the iPad1 used to be able to do.

However, I cannot be absolutely certain from this one test that the problem is limited to iPad1, because as the cache content grows with use maybe the problem would eventually arise on the iPad2 as well. I am just speculating about the cache being implicated-- just trying to think of reasons why it used to work on the iPad and then stopped working, though I hadn't changed a thing. The iPad I test with belongs to my wife and I believe she may have upgraded the O/S after my original tests when the pages were working correctly.

Layout behavior of stuff in Mobile Safari will be pixel-identical in both devices. – Matthew Frederick Apr 12 '11 at 12:33
That is the theory. I would like to see if there's any difference because of faster machine. It could be related to timeout settings in the script. – Tim Apr 12 '11 at 12:46
Ah, interesting. I can see that. – Matthew Frederick Apr 12 '11 at 13:05
Is this worth keeping open? Can we help with more details? – bmike Feb 29 '12 at 5:02

I'm not sure which -H- you mean, but the tab seems to be rendering OK in landscape mode at least.

wow just noticed how old this question is. oh well, hopefully this answer is still useful! – newtron May 25 '11 at 21:28

On iOS 5 and the original iPad the truncation of the glossary has ceased.
