in thread using <pre> tags for citing perldocs!

what I'm meaning is that autowrapping a text at char 70 (or 72?) which is already wrapped at char 80 isn't that fortunate.

That's why I suggest change "code" to autowrap at char 80 or to introduce a new tag which autowraps at char 80. (I have problems to imagine displays which can handle 72 chars but not 80)

At the moment "pre" is the best solution for perldocs.

Cheers Rolf

    I think the idea is that you adjust it in your personal Display Settings ("Code Wrap Length") if you don't like the default.

    (Yes, I agree that - for the average display - 80 might be a more useful default (I've set mine to 100) — but I'm not the one to make the change.)
