Hi,

In test view on my desktop the formfields display withing the mobile phone screen of 480px.
However on the phone itself the text fields dont display within 480px for some odd reason.
The below code doesnt work on the device but does work on a desktop?

   <h4>Activity One</h4>
	<form action='saveRecord.php' method='post'>
	<b>Question a) What does a CPU stand for</b><br>
	<textarea class="textareawidth" rows='1' cols=50 name='q1' value=><?php echo $q1;  ?></textarea><br>
 
@media screen and (max-width: 480px) {
	
	 
	  .textareawidth {width:300px;}

it actually works when i set the  .textareawidth {width:250px;} which doesnt make sense as the screen is 480px wide

And if you remove the cols="50" ?

Not sure but that might be interpreted on the device as overriding the CSS setting.
