I am using IE6 (latest) to read this forum, and when I read a topic, the text goes way off the side of the screen which means I do not only have to scroll down but sideways to read the posts. The topic screens fits the width of my screen perfectly.

It seems to be when there is code added to the post then the window size is the same maximum width as the longest line of code. Does this seem correct?

Does anyone else have this problem or is it a problem that everyone puts up with.

Cheers

It's something I put up with, I think everyone else does too.
Better than having to fix wrapped lines if you paste code into VDS I think Smile

Sheep is mostly right here. The line wrapping behaviour lies not in your browser but in the forum's
HTML code - if the 'nowrap' attribute was removed from some strategic forum tags, everything would
wrap nicely.

But the code sections might be more difficult to read where long lines of code were wrapped over
two or more lines. However, I don't that think that this should influence the code copying; browsers
will not break lines at automatic line wraps, only at real line breaks.

Usually (when I remember too) when I'm typing in the box for a post or
reply, when I reach the end of the line to the right of the edit box border,
I hit return to start on a new line. This way, my post doesn't extend to the
right when there's code.
