Hello,

I find it really annoying that news titles in the News Headlines are trimmed. I understand the purpose of it (I do web development), but since I can't view the full page title without loading the page, it makes it very annoying. I would expect that if I hover over the link, I get a title description of the entire untrimmed headline.

Such as right now, the homepage shows:
04/19 Early HP slate hands-on: just a netbook...
04/19 NPD data may point to 2.9M Macs, 10M...
04/19 Apple offers replacements for faulty...
04/19 Leak: iPhone HD to use Apple's own...
04/19 AT&T, iPhone create communications...
It would be nice if the full headline could be read on hover. This can be easily done with a title attribute.

Thanks

Have you tried Legacy format or the standard front page?

If it is just headlines that you want, I'll try to forward this to the appropriate person.

Edit: I just tried the Headlines page in FireFox 3.62 - none of the headlines appear to be clipped. When I mouse over a headline, I get the first paragraph of the story. Were you talking about a different page?

I am talking about the standard front page.

By clipping I mean they are trimmed off with the three periods (...) and I am unable to view the rest of the headline.
