Don't know why I never brought this up until now, but...

I know how much Andrei loves justified text, but maybe, just maybe, it's not 
such a great idea on the website's sidebar menu?:

I think (based on my understanding of Andrei's vision of the website) that text should have had soft hyphens inserted inside its words by a JavaScript script (which doesn't work correctly in all browsers), but I guess you have JS off :) -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:vladimir thecybershadow.net

I thought of that, but it looks exactly the same for me both with and without JS. The *only* difference is that if JS is on, the currently selected item has a white dotted underline. But regardless, there's no reason why simple text should look like shit without JS. If the JS hyphenation works and looks good, then what you do is make the HTML/CSS left-aligned and then turn on justification in the JS. Trivial.

Below a width even text with hyphens looks odd. On my own website (www.erdani.com) I turned off justification and hyphenation in the testimonials. Andrei

Javascript for this? D: CSS CAN DO THAT! D: word-break: hyphenate !important; word-wrap: break-word; The !important and second line are only required for firefox/opera compatibility, they won't use hyphens though. -- Robert http://octarineparrot.com/

Yah, I wonder how that remained there. Andrei

 On the dmars.com site the snippets can be copied normally.

They work fine for me in Konqueror (using KHTML). - Jonathan M Davis

Yeah what's also weird is that when I clone the repo and build the
website via the makefile, copy-pasting works fine in Firefox, but when
I try to do it remotely via dpl.org, it doesn't work.

I can confirm it works fine in IE8 though. Maybe it's a plugin issue.. hmm

It works fine for me on WinXP, FF2, Programmer's Notepad 2. Hmm, but it doesn't work if I use Arora instead of FF (I lose the EOLs just like you). The code sample font is also really, really large in Arora for some reason (but looks fine in FF).

IE7 is a mix: The code font is overly large like in Arora, but copy/paste works fine. Opera 10.62 is same as IE7: Code font is huge, copy/paste works. In Chrome (well, really SRWare Iron 4), the font size looks right, but then the stupid POS browser actually *crashes*. Hmm, lemme try again but with JS off...Ehh, well that figures, Chrome doesn't appear to even have a way to shut off JS. Ahh, but if I'm fast enough I can copy the text before it crashes and...just like Arora, the EOLs are missing. Guess it must be a WebKit screwup.
