My blogging tool is Windows Live Writer and I use the "Insert From Visual Studio" plug-in to get pretty looking code into my postings. The generated code uses the <pre> tag for formatting the elements.
Unfortunately my blog provider doesn’t always render this properly and will clip text that is too long. Ideally I would like to either
- Wrap code that overflows the page
- Put up a localized scroll bar for the code snippet
Luckily the plug-in puts the outer most <pre> tag into it’s own CSS class: code. This makes the problem easy with a CSS override.
overflow : auto;
