I'm interested in knowing which Tumblr themes handles <pre> tags well by default, meaning that one won't have text flowing out of the screen. For so many that I've checked, I have to add CSS on the Advanced tab:

pre {
 overflow: auto;
  • With reference to your other question this should read "handle pre tags well?"

From what I see you have "code" there; You can add a Syntax Highlighter script or something.

See here for a possible solution (it's in french, but you can use Google Translate)
