Sometimes authors need to show content that should not break. Long commands.
System responses. Mainframe screen captures. Etc. All of these elements are
formatted as non-flowing/breaking text. It's late in the day and my brain
has apparently checked out and I can't remember the "technical" FOSI name
for that. Anyhow, when those don't fit in the text column, authors often
have a couple of options, smallify the font, go page wide (rather than in
our offset text column).
In my problem, technically, it's not the not-wrapping that is causing the
problem. (The too-wide text "happily" launches through the right margin and
beyond.) It's when the author chooses pgwide="yes" to fix that problem, that
FOSI forces it to align too far to the left colliding with the algroup area
Is that what you were after? If it's the FOSI language for "don't break me
no matter what" ... <xmp> from HTML ... as I said earlier, that word has
left my brain for today. Hopefully someone else will remind us (or I'll
update this thread tomorrow).
