in reply to Pages often too wide
The perlmonks' cgi only break long lines if it is found a space or tab on some part of line.
Sometimes, people, writes some one-line code without any spaces, so the result is a wide page. So, trying to wrap the code to 50 chars is useless.
I wrote once, a script whithout almost any space ... i'm guilty.
I think, the solution, is not on your browser ...
Re-educate monks (including me here) for putting some spaces on a long string (every 80 char, p.e.), could be the real solution
Umm, i've noticed that those long unbreakable strings are breaken (with another criteria) when you see the nodes whithout login, as an Anonymous Monk :).
