I was looking at an old post and when I expand the comments they spread way over everything on the right. Has anyone else experienced this problem?
I see it in Firefox 4.01, Chrome 11.0.696.68, and Opera 11.10 (on Mac).
Yay! More unicode fun!
So far we were inserting soft-hyphens
­ into long comment lines without whitespace to force line-breaks; but it seems that not all browsers can be convinced to make this work in all cases.
We can't use the zero-width space
​ because it doesn't work in IE; we can't use the zero-width non-joiner
‌ because that doesn't work in all browser as well.
But alas: It seems the using both actually works everywhere. So, from now on, our Stack Exchange™ WhiteSpace EnforcementOfficer™ is
Next build, as usual.
