Greetings!

Sorry to bother you, but I think a simple change in css might make quoting things from the mud much easier, namely by making <pre> tags wrap long lines and I think maybe only you can change the css file(s) for the wiki.

This is in response to some complaints raised by visitors about lack of wrapping lines in <pre> tags that results in horizontal scrolling and breaks in the layout.

Unfortunately, other options like using the template:prebox doesn't preserve white space or newlines and requires adding lots of <br> tags which change the space between lines. (See other options considered here and here.)

I'm wondering if it would be possible to add the following lines to the existing lines in the css file(s) in the pre section:

pre {
 overflow-x: auto; /* Use horizontal scroller if needed; for Firefox 2, not needed in Firefox 3 */
 white-space: pre-wrap; /* css-3 */
 white-space: -moz-pre-wrap !important; /* Mozilla, since 1999 */
 white-space: -pre-wrap; /* Opera 4-6 */
 white-space: -o-pre-wrap; /* Opera 7 */
 word-wrap: break-word; /* Internet Explorer 5.5+ */
}

I think this would make it work like people expect, preserve white space and newlines but wrap if it doesn't fit in the browser's window. It seems to work in local tests.
