Shifting page layout


This may be "just" an IE bug (haven't got internet running under Linux yet), but when I go to a second (etc) page of a thread the textbox size goes way beyond my screen and I have to scroll left and right to be able to read. Refreshing the page doesn't help.

its probably because someone used the {CODE} {/CODE} tags (its with the brackets, i used the curl brackets so the page wont render them as actual tags)

Code:
this is a example of a code tag that is just to big for its own little good,        i wonder if people would like to read this annoying tag and scroll all day long to see it bla bal bal bal bal
in firefox (at least in linux, im not sure if with happens in windows, as i use the recent version) the CODE tags get there own scroll bar, in windows IE it just extents the screen)

I can exclusively verify that Mozilla in Windows and Linux give the code box a scroll bar, whereas IE under Windows simply extends the screen (but puts the code part in a pretty grey outlined box).

So, either the page coding is incorrect (and I don't for a minute believe that) or IE just can't handle real coding. Which one do you think it is?

Nice to Know the possible WHY, but as I guess I'm not the only one using IE just maybe somebody could...

I am exploring a possible fix now, but whether it will be implemented is still uncertain do to the impact it would have.
