win95 ie5  there's no vertical scrollbar in them boxen

>how are other sites dealing with long lines of <pre></pre> text?

break up the lines where desired, and insert a "continued" character (could
be a 16x16 image, those work well)

for example,

     ==>     cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,0,0"
         ID=cands_intro WIDTH=290 HEIGHT=320
         longdesc="webpage.html" accesskey="6"&gt;

note the syntax allows breaks between attribute/value pairs, but not within
the url, so that's where the continuation character comes in

not a clean cut & paste operation like the textarea, but looks better than
most textareas

and a lot of the code we're putting into textareas wouldn't need the
continuation character in a <pre>..</pre> block at all, being short enough
not to kill the layout
