Nice. And, while you're at it, fix the thing mentioned in that post :) 'std.bind' should point to http://digitalmars.com/d/phobos/std_bind.html L.

I usually don't use the webb interface so I can't compare but. The last post is not linewrapped in konqueror causing side scrolling.

The formatter doesn't wrap the lines, as it is usually preformatted.

I'd still suggest making the text inside the <pre> blocks wrappable. You can do this either by using ordinary <div>s instead of <pre>s for the PostingBody, or adding the following CSS attribute to the PostingBody class in /d/style.css: white-space: normal; This will make user-agents rewrap text, eliminating horizontal scroll bars. -- Best regards, Vladimir mailto:thecybershadow gmail.com

I tried it, but it wraps code, too, goofing it all up.

Not to mention that: - it would destroy indentation as it did before, unless you explicitly convert leading spaces, multiple spaces and tabs to &nbsp; - it would create a mess of line breaks in strange places for some of us, who may be using lower-resolution displays or a large font. But a good course of action, at least IMO, would be handle format=flowed messages by setting word wrap and using explicit <br> for the hard line breaks. BTW I noticed a bug - it fails to replace & with &amp;. As well as being just one cause of the many validation errors, it's bound to alter what some people wrote, including here. Stewart.

I did it a simpler way - I just put the line wrapping in the converter program.

Oops.

What would be the point of using <pre> at all if you're just going to cancel out its semantics with CSS? Stewart.

Would be nicer if the quote text is in different color or gray out. vtp

It is in a slightly different color. I think greying it out would make it harder to read. If you look closely, you'll see that each nested quote has a slightly smaller font <g>.

The key word there is "usually", however there is still an awful lot of text that is not meant to be preformatted and is expected to be flowed. In general, I suspect you will happier readers if you flow the text rather than keep it the way it is. -- Derek (skype: derek.j.parnell) Melbourne, Australia "Justice for David Hicks!" 9/03/2007 12:31:45 PM
