... making parts of the text unreadable. See MichasTestTopic. This happens quite often in the Bugs web, wonder why nobody complained before. Bug items get unreadable if there's a verbatim with lots of horizontal text in it.

Problem is known, but solution is not.


Just to clarify, this is unreadable as in "have to scroll to read", or?

I believe there are a few different browser behaviours in this (for instance ff shows a scrollbar near the verbatim, some versions of ie extend the table width etc), if you are getting a "no way to scroll to read"-unreadable perhaps elaborate a bit on the browser details?

The behavior is different for different browsers:

Browser Scrollbar Extend page Cut off Plain Text
Firefox yes no no
Mac Firefox yes no no
Galeon yes no no
Epiphany yes no no
Opera yes no no
konqueror no yes yes
Mac Safari no yes yes
IE5 ?? ?? ??
IE6 no yes no

-- MD

The problem is that not every browser can handle pre text inside a table. A solution would be to have form data rendered in divs, not in a table.

Since a different solution is out of reach for TWIki or PatternSkin I will discard this item.
