I use IE frequently. Somtimes I see this situation, especially when there is a post with very long title. Martin, do you need more information about bugs with IE?

Moodle does attempt to break it up as
Re: Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_SL in /var/www/html/moodle /backup/restore_execu te.html on line 124
but not well enough.
Firefox adds another break at one of the slashes, IE doesn't.
I'm not a man given to hating but I hate IE more each day.
Martin, I've always appreciated your instinct about Moodle applications and how they should function, and now I even appreciate your humor. Sometimes we need more humor in the world.
Every day I am more impressed with Moodle and your team of developers.
We can all dream of the day when we can actually write CSS purely based on the specs. With both horizontal and vertical centering without exact pixel widths. Working margins and borders. And what have you. Do we have CSS 1 support yet? Maybe switching to Safari would help. And a Mac, I think they have a two-button wheel mouse already?
Vu, this bug has been logged in the bug tracker as bug 1718 (and you can see from the number that it's quite old). It is caused by this behavior:
When a parent element has a fixed pixel width, and a child element a percentage width, then if the parent element for some reason gets forced to grow beyond its nominal width the child element's width is not updated to reflect this growth.
This is exactly the case with blocks, the table columns containing the blocks have a fixed width and the blocks have width: 100%. Of course the bug appears only on IE.
I 'll take a half-hearted look again to see if there's anything that can be done...
Unfortunately, it wasn't. Which means that right now, as far as I know, there is no way to solve bug 1718. This is really so frustrating...
