    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.


    You are Totally on the wrong track
