Hi Alastair and all,

Thank you.

I added the Boston Globe and BBC to the implementations tool [1].

The Boston Globe passed for me. However, lede in sentences (the
introductory bit of a news story that is intended to entice the reader
to read the full story) are missing for most articles at 400% and 1280
pixels wide on the BBC site. I marked that as a failure :-) Guess we
need to find another implementation for reflow. I'll keep looking.

Kindest Regards,
Laura
