I am trying to output some system messages on a linux server directly to a browser and must use the <pre> tag to keep the formatting on the text that is dumped out.
Problem is if the text is over a certain length the table the text is in expands to make the text fit. Is there a way to stop this from happening? CSS would be preferable as it means I can lose the table completly.
There is no whitespace there so it wont work. The only option I can really see is to not use a <pre> tag but that sort of defeats the purpose of the script as it collapses the output into 1 long string of data.
Oh well the scrollbars idea will have to suffice for now but if anyone knows something I dont please tell me :)
