    that is because somebody used the monospace code tags which expands the table instead of starting the text on a new line

    Then they should go by the industry standard of in most languages not having any one line of code exceed 80 chars.

    LOL, yeah. My fault

    You could always make the CODE tag parse the contents and put a break/tab after any 80 char line, though. Of course, you'd have to calculate tabs as, say, 10 chars.

    By the way, if someone adds an image that's too wide, it screws up the format, too. You changed uploaded images to links, but URL referenced images still show in the page. Maybe you could change those to scale down to the allowed width and make them link to a popup of the original image so they don't mess up the look of the forum.

    It is not possible to scale images without either destroying their aspect ratio or crippling the page load times (download the image, check its size, move on for each image).

    Have you thought about making external images as links also?

    I've thought about it but don't think it's a big enough problem.

    With many big pictures in a thread will make the thread slow scrolling with those old computers.
