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?" – phwd Dec 13 '10 at 18:12

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)

Or, another thing I found: http://drnicwilliams.com/2007/03/08/syntax-highlighting-in-tumblr/
