I'm having this presentation issue with Solstice theme. Could someone point me towards a solution, short of changing the theme?

You are using <pre> tags when you should be using <code> tags

Pre retains the format



modules = ['meta-gnome-core', 'meta-gnome-apps-featured']  # This is what is built by the build slaves (http:build.gnome.org/)

modules = ['meta-gnome-core', 'meta-gnome-apps-featured'] # This is what is built by the build slaves (http:build.gnome.org/)

  • I actually want the result to look like Pre. But it instead goes off the screen.

    @Tshepang well you will have to choose a different theme to accomodate for the width or set your overflow to auto in the pre css in the advanced section, so it displays as above.

    @Tshepang, Alternatively, you could have asked @phwd to edit his comment into the answer and then accepted his answer rather than posting your own. Dec 14, 2010 at 0:16

I went to Advanced tab and added this under Add custom CSS section:

pre {
 overflow: auto;
