the {code} tag is a pain: text gets too wide

Hello,

I often use the -tag to format some console input/output. When I do this, the thread content in the forum gets very wide and there is no scroll bar availabe if the thread is really long. To scroll to the very right, you either have to scroll down to the vertical scrollbar, use it and scroll back up or you mark the text with the mouse, then you can also scroll to the right. All this is very ugly!

Please find an example [here|MaxDB 7.6.5.09 upgrade / install hangs at inst_reg.;

I suggest that tag somehow respect the window width.

I'm SAP internal and I use IE6 (have to).

Thanks and Regards,

Marc-Philip

    Sadly, code without tags is a pain as well.

    There were several complaints about this already, but it is obviously browser dependent and/or SCN admins don't want to or cannot do anything about it.

    At work, I have to live with the same symptom (IE 6), at home there are nice scroll bars in each of these code windows (FF 2).

    it must also work with IE, because some forum users must use that browser!
