Today I added max-width to prevent overly wide code snippets causing unwanted scrollbars:

If the content is overly wide; why are the scrollbars "unwanted"?

How do you get to view the right hand side if you do away with them?

    OK, "unwanted" is maybe not the best choice of wording. With my desktop being two 1920x1200 24" monitors, my first "need" with websites is to use 100% of the available width so I do not have these silly white edges. So I change a lot of fixed with garbage designed for 1980 devices to use 100% instead of 640px. HTTP::Proxy to the rescue.

    I just measured my Opera to have a current size of 1530px in width. When I want the code snippets in the threads to "fit" left of the right bar (from which I indeed block some content), I need to restrict the size. Not wanting the scrollbar actually means I don't want the need for the scrollbar, as then the other elements get scrolled out, e.g. the (--) and (*)++ radio buttons.

    Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn
