The Instant View Editor uses a three-column layout, so you really want to use it on a desktop screen that's wide enough. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Issue #2

I think there's character limit for issue description on server side, so there's full text if it get's clipped:

Again, I stand by that this time is not correct. If site showed time in local timezone of visitor then such behavior would be correct (because it converts time to IV bot local time, effictively making it UTC+0).

But this site shows publication date regardless of visitor/viewer time zone. It would be nonsense to assume that it's UTC+0 (which is required by perfect template checklist), since it's not used ANYWHERE in Russia.

IV converts publication_date to local time of viewer/consumer, so IV bot/generator must know correct time in UTC+0, on which this template can't be trusted/relied on.

"It is possible for a perfect template to display a date/time that looks different than the original." - POSSIBLE, but not required.
