Something about the forum setup causes the text in threads to not wrap correctly--it extends beyond the browser margins. I've noticed this in the past but thought it might be a Firefox compatibility issue however, I've tried every browser I have, Firefox, Mozilla, and Konqueror on my Linux box and also Internet Explorer in Windows XP and text-wrap problems happens with them as well.

Has anyone else noticed this? Is there a fix?

This happens for me too. I'm guessing it's a function of people posting long hyperlinks or large pictures--they don't get wrapped, so all other text uses the where they stop as the new border of the text box.

I didn't think of that. This thread wraps correctly.

Let's see what happens if I put a long quote in.

That's "sore"...


Wide pictures will do it, too.
