Preformatted content using HTML element too wide

  1. Hi

    I've got a problem in that the preformatted text is too wide (also, a horizontal scrollbar is being rendered at the foot of the content, but not at the top, so there's no immediate feedback that there's potentially a problem; it's only when you get to the end that you see the scrollbar and think 'oh, hey, that's why the text on the right-hand side is being truncated!).

    I've checked the help, can't see anything relevant. I see three other threads in the forum voicing similar concerns, but they're all closed.

    Problem is demonstrated at this page (using FireFox 10.02.2):

    Any assistance would be cool. I really don't want to have to reformat the content, if I can avoid that.

    The blog I need help with is pendantry.wordpress.com.

  2. Simplest solution: change the opening pre tag (in the HTML editor) to this:
    <pre style="font-size:80%;">

  3. Thank you, Justpi. That appears to do the trick.
