ASP.NET 2.0 Gridview - Output on a Blackberry 8700/8800

Hi there,

I've been trying to display a simple grid on a web page in a Blackberry.
I've used a gridview control which is populated from a database query,
using ASP.NET 2.0.
The target platform is a 8700v (Vodafone model). The issue also occurs on the 8800.

I've downloaded the 8700c (Cingular model) which is the closest I can find.
After much frustration and googling I've constructed a Blackberry.Browser file, which with a page including Response.Writes of Browser Capabilities seems to be working with identical results on the Simulator and the Vodafone.

The problem is the table will not display on the Vodafone. The output is fine on the simulator. On the vodafone, the numbers are on three lines separated with single spaces.

I am reluctant to "patch" the vodafone, as it represents the entry level for an unknown number of Blackberries in our organisation.

My Capability list is as follows:

<capability name="browser" value="BlackBerry" />
<capability name="isMobileDevice" value="true" />
<capability name="javascript" value="true" />
<capability name="ecmascriptversion" value="1.3" />
<capability name="version" value="${version}" />
<capability name="majorVersion" value="${major}" />
<capability name="minorVersion" value="${minor}" />
<capability name="supportsCss" value="true" />
<capability name="frames" value="true" />
<capability name="cookies" value="true" />
<capability name="tables" value="true" />
<capability name="HTMLTextWriter" value="true" />
<capability name="RequiresLeadingPageBreak" value="true" />

The User Agents are identical apart from the Vendor:
BlackBerry8700/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/120
(120 - Vodafone)

Am I missing something here, or is patching the only way forward?

Any assistance greatly appreciated.
