Don't know if someone brought it up yet, but it would be really nice if the code tags could get a whitespace: pre;
I understand some may go to wide, so I suggest setting a fixed width and overflow auto, as long as I can copy all the html without the structure being lost it's fine by me.

furthermore, can you increase the margin or padding between paragraphs?

As a rule, I never touch anything more sophisticated and delicate than myself

Good suggestion

I'm with you on that one, Desdi. You can use the [code] tags, but that means you have to strip and replace the < delimiters. It's a PITA, but I do like to maintain formatting.

I haven't tried nesting the tags, but will, like so: [code]<code>...</code>[/code]

//edit: well, that's a non-starter. bah!

cheers,

gary

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

white-space

Hi Guy's,
I have added white-space:pre to code.
Here's a test:



Let me know if it is screwing up anything.

<ul id="nav"> <li> <a

Sorry, Tony. I had it formatted this way:
<code>
<ul id="nav">
  <li> <a href="#" >first Level menu</a>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#" >second Level menu</a></li>
      <li><a href="#" >second Level menu</a>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="#" >third Level menu</a></li>
        </ul>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </li>
</ul>
</code>

cheers,

gary

Went huntin', found this

Went huntin', found this (reformatted to my tastes:)):

code, .code, pre {
    color:#069; 
    background-color:#FCFCFC;
    border:solid 1px #CCC;
    font-size:1.3em; 
    display:block; 
    margin:5px 0 5px 5px; 
    padding:5px 0 5px 5px;
    overflow: auto;}
	
code {
    max-height:400px; 
    overflow:auto;}

Where'd you put it?

I did this to good effect:

code, .code, pre {
    white-space: pre;
    color:#069; 
    background-color:#FCFCFC;
    border:solid 1px #CCC;
    font-size:1.3em; 
    display:block; 
    margin:5px 0 5px 5px; 
    padding:5px 0 5px 5px;
    overflow: auto;}
	
code {
    max-height:400px; 
    overflow:auto;}

Hmmm, was I running on a cached style.css?

cheers,

gary

Hi Gary,
It took me a couple of times refreshing my test post before I saw anything change. Smile

OK, that did it. Seems I jumped the gun.

Boy! Desdi had a good idea. Smile
