Hi - I am running Safari Internet browser on my G4 Powerbook running Tiger.
However, my online pages are just a tad wide for the screen size (set to maximum, 1440x900. I don't seem to remember this being a problem before, so perhaps I have changed some setting inadvertently?

Does it happen on all websites or just some?

This is very odd considering your resolution. Most websites these days try to conform to sizes easily readable by the baseline resolution, 800x600, or, at the very least, one step up at 1024x768, both of which are considerably smaller than your resolution.
Look under Safari->Preferences->Advanced to make sure that the field "Style Sheet" reads "None Selected," otherwise you are loading a style that will be automatically applied to all pages you view, meaning that many might be stretched beyond your viewing capacity.
Another possibility is that the websites are using percentage widths to setup how wide things should display, meaning that Safari is incorrectly assuming that your screen size is larger than it actually is. I'm not exactly sure why this would happen or how to fix it, but it's something some of the other members here might be able to address.

This is very embarrassing... I think I just resized the window and all seems OK...terribly sorry!
