[New-bugs-announce] [issue4711] Wide literals in the table of contents overflow in documentation

New submission from Scott Dial <scott at scottdial.com>:
There is a problem with the table contents with respect to literals that
cannot be word-wrapped. I see this issue here:
The line in the table of contents that reads "The multiprocessing.dummy
module" is broken in that the literal "multiprocessing.sharedctypes"
overflows into the right-hand side. It also ends up underneath the
contents on the right, which makes it extra hard to know what that entry
This instance may be browser specific, but I think it brings up a more
general question of what should be done with such long literals and how
overflow should be handled. And perhaps even whether it is wise to have
set the width of that div to such a narrow and specific value (230px).
I've attached a screenshot from Firefox 22.214.171.124/Win32 in case it is not
as reproducible as I would expect.
