I enjoy reading the journal and check out each new edition. Thank you for the hard work.

I went to check out the new journal this morning and am wondering why the page text in the right column doesn't wrap? I have to use the bottom horizontal scroll to read to the end of each paragraph. I am on a 22" monitor and have the problem even if I scale the whole page down to tiny tiny type using ctrl- on the browser. Firefox ver 29.01 on ubuntu.

Regards, Margaret

I downloaded the current (May) edition and then downloaded April and compared the source code. In the May 2014 edition the <pre> tag is being used and that is causing the width issue. In April and March the <pre> was not used and those issues wrap correctly. As soon as I replaced all the <pre> tags with <p> tags in my downloaded copy for May 2014 the right column wrapped correctly.

Perhaps one of the moderators could fix the May 2014 page?

Regards.

Fixed. The email formatting does not work well in the wiki, and in particular, some of it triggers the <pre> blocks.
