  Any alternative to pre ? Code doesn't do it, width on pre seems
to get ignore and code with "white-space: pre" gives the same result for me.

   Galeon provides that too.

   Hum, each time I touch those CSS settings somemeone complains I 
should fix them in a different way... the good point is that I just need
to change them in the XSLT to fix the whole site:

TD {font-size: 14pt; font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica}
BODY {font-size: 14pt; font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica; margin-top: 2em; margin-left: 0em; margin-right: 0em}
H1 {font-size: 20pt; font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica}
H2 {font-size: 18pt; font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica}
H3 {font-size: 16pt; font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica}

  Is removing all the font-size properties sufficient ?
I tried and it looks acceptable to me in term of size. But doesn't fix
the fact that <pre> extends too much.
  What do you suggest ?
