  • Yes, this is a known word wrap bug. Not sure when it'll be fixed though. The basic problem with all these rendering issues is the fact that we store/render html and people often do things in html that make it diffucult to render content without any bugs.

    I'd like to get rid of html and go with some limitted markup that we can actually validate and maintain, so posts that have html variants are easier to constrain and avoid them breaking our ux. But until them, we just have to fix these as they come in, depending on their priority.

    Our of curiosity what would happen if you wrapped a post in a < div > with overflow-x:scroll ? Would it encapsulate the problematic html into a div with a horizontal scroll bar?
