Bug: Source code wrapping in IE

There is a bug in IE which ruins the layout of receipes containing code with very long lines. An example is: AligningStrings. Previously I have just wrapped the offending lines, but since not all of you use IE I'd just make you aware of the problem. I think the problem is the interpretation of CSS.

The problem does seem to be CSS-related. It seems to occur anytime that the source code lines are wider than the browser window, in IE. It works fine in Mozilla-family browsers.

The VoidSkin which the site currently uses has some fairly sophisticated CSS to achieve the page layout. The CSS files are:

Fixing this will probably require trial and error, especially to ensure it doesn't also break in other browsers. Other alternatives are to switch to a different skin, or change VoidSkin's CSS to use tables instead of CSS, which might work better.

I did some playing around with an aspect of this problem in TestVerbatim. It seems that fiddling with the DIV and PRE elements in which Scheme source is currently wrapped has an effect on the problem, although it's flaky.

This is a SiteToDo.
