The article is showing examples of 4:3 content on a 16:9 screen.

10 years ago that would have been a common thing. However this is
nolonger the case, and TV has to be viewed in letterbox on a 4:3 screen
or you will be missing heaps of action and in many cases titles.

So worrying about the height of 4:3 content on a 16:9 screen is a bit
pointless when its the whole width of the widescreen that is being used,
but not the full height of the old square screen.

Go into a shop and ask a Sales man, I went into this in great depths as
being a TV repair man for some years..

Its well known its the screen height that counts.
