No Text Wrap Desired RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have typed several text pages - To date I have observed that the text has always wrapped to the size of the window that I have arbitrary set to view said web (text) page

    I want my text to be fixed independent of the window size that might be used to view said text

    Specifically, if the window size is too small to view the entire text, I do not want the text to wrap to fit the size of the smaller window - Instead, I want the text to remain fixed and force the viewer to either (1) expand his screen to view the entire text or (2) force the viewer to use the horizontal scroll bar along the bottom of the browser to scroll over the text that he cannot see all at once

    What do I have to do to keep the text from wrapping ??

    Thank you in advance for your replys

  • You'd have to wrap the text with the <pre> and </pre> tag using the HTML editor.  Beware that the post editor is pretty crummy, it has the nasty habit of doubling the line spacing in such blocks every time you edit the post.

    Not sure if this is common, but I usually skip posts like that.  Too much work.
