Description: On my wiki site a page didn't fit on the usual width after beeing edited by some users. I had to edit myself the page, delete all newlines and insert new ones to have it fine.

I'm not sure of my analysis because I remove some other garbage in this page. Is it a known problem ?

I'd need to see a copy of the page with the problems to know for sure. Were the long lines in monospace text, as if someone had entered a leading space?

Also, I know that some Mac browsers do bizarre things with newlines and carriage returns when posting new text, but I don't have access to a Mac and so I've not been able to duplicate the problem.


I had a look at the history and find a few lines in monospace text with a leading space, I didn't knew this feature. Are the long lines expected in that case ? noe

Yes, the long lines are expected in that case -- leading monospace is used for preformatted text (html <pre> tags) and most browsers elect to not break such text. Thus long lines end up being displayed very wide horizontally. So, I'm marking this as "not a bug" -- reopen it if something else needs to be done. --Pm
