Regarding INFO displays in mobiles:

I wonder if we can get FINDU.COM and APRS.FI and all other APRS display pages to display a "MOBILE WINDOW" that shows what all position packet TEXT data looks like to the MOBILE operator on his standard 10x10x8 display?

If the FINDU or .FI display also shows the same data format as is flashed on the mobile radio display, it would go a long way towards helping people format their text to be more useful in the mobile!

For the last 10 years and especially since the New-N Paradigm in 2004, we have stressed the importance of formatting text for best display to the APRS mobile operator.  And this is simply formatting the most important info for best display on the 10x10x8 display line format.
