Apple has decided not to allow DIVs to be scrolly.

This means I can't read code blocks with long lines on my iPad.

Care to explain where you put them? –  Uphill Luge Jun 11 '10 at 23:39
    
@Hans Scroll down to the code block div that doesn't wrap. Press the div with the tips of two fingers (I suggest the index and middle finger of your dominant hand) and drag left. I'll add an example so you can try it here. –  Jason Punyon Jun 12 '10 at 0:04
    
This is a good solution, but there are times when this is problematic for readability. what would be nice if there was a way to collapse the right column. –  Russ C Aug 18 '11 at 8:18
