Line 1: Line 1:
You know, putting the description inside a <pre> box makes it not wordwrap, which makes it extend way off to the right, meaning people have to scroll horizontally to read it. If you want to put linebreaks in there without having that problem, use the <br> tag at the end of each line, like this:
You see Literate Frazyl the Witch.&lt;br&gt;<br>
She is just a mostly harmless little young lady, and skinny besides.&lt;br&gt;<br>
She is tall and slim like a pretty tall and rather slim person. Her skin is unblemished and featureless but otherwise unremarkable. Her movements have a strange grace-like efficiency and precision. She often peers intently at some thing that has caught her interest. Her dark eyes shine forth as the sun seen from the depths of the ocean, with green and blue waves gently mingling and parting to the rhythm of her breath. Her silky black hair flows out of a hooded snow-silk cloak, an Offler-headed mask, a witch's pointy hat and a blackened leather lamellar coif and sways all the way down to her thighs. The dark of her hair gleams softly in shades of blues and greens.
That way you get proper word wrapping, plus linebreaks. [[User:Tiggum|Tiggum]] 04:23, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
:Yes there is a problem with &lt;pre&gt; not wrapping lines. As it turns out, [[Template:Prebox]] seems to work much better (at least it wraps quite well in firefox), we should replace it with that in pages. Adding lots of &lt;br&gt; is way too awkward if there's other options. --[[User:Frazyl|Frazyl]] 22:16, 16 March 2010 (UTC)
::Mmmm. Well ok newlines seem rather wonky with Template:prebox but fixing the template is likely to be easier than putting &lt;br&gt; everywhere all the time. --[[User:Frazyl|Frazyl]] 22:30, 16 March 2010 (UTC)

Fixed. We can use &lt;pre> now, it should wrap fine in any modern browser (that implements CSS-3).
