P990i, by default is portrait display, switching to landscape does
provide a 'fullscreen' mode, but hey, don't let a valid point get in
the way of the argument!
I really don't understand this attitude, it was a very clear point,
pressing F11 in a *large* number of browsers does not provide a
'fullscreen' mode. I mean, how many mobile devices even have an F11?
Besides, this is what I would consider as the 'correct'
implementation, from mart at degeneration.co.uk :
