I think your problem can be solved with Auto Code Wrapping in your User Settings.

More information about that is at New code wrap options

    "Auto" code wrapping only partially works for browsers that don't support soft hyphens (it won't break long sequences of non-white-space characters and this often means you'll see very wide pages). In fact, flyingmoose's problem could well be the use of "auto" code wrapping.

    For quite a long time, the only browser that supported ­ was IE6. Finally, some of the other browsers are catching up on this front. I've heard reports that the latest FireFox and latest Opera now support ­, though I haven't verified these claims.

    See Re: Space or Soft Hyphens (see code wrap) to see if your browser supports soft hyphens.

    I have a design for how to reformat <pre> tags similar to how "auto" code wrapping works, which will prevent most of the problems with <pre> tags making pages wide while still having them appear the same (if your window is wide enough).

    I'll probably make this optional and it won't use &shy; unless you've enabled auto code wrapping. No, there is no schedule for when it will be available. (At the moment, I'm still rebuilding part of my PM development platform.)

      I'm using firefox 0.8 on Debian. Horiz scrolling only appears to be screwy on the monastery gates, so maybe it's a node from one of the less visited forums? I've tried this with code wrapping on and off both.

      Not a big deal, prob not worth worrying about, just thought I'd ask.
