in reply to Rein in overly long|wide code segments via CSS

I do not like the scrolling or empty area thus produced myself

Why do you force the width and height then? I just do

.code { overflow: auto; }

and this seems to do the right thing by me.

    I see that "overflow" alone takes care of the width just fine; thanks grinder. I would still need to take care of overly long code segments myself.

    Only if I could specify a maximum height after which "height:" attribute would take effect (without JavaScript)!

      The max-height attribute does exactly that. It works fine for me in my somewhat-recent Firefox.

        blokhead, that was very helpful. I have updated CSS accordingly.
