despite what rudy said, other than some cleaning, there's been no reason to
move them over, so i haven't yet...  i figured i'd take care of it in the next style

except the style doesn't work in IE/mac... it actually causes the entire <pre>
to collapse and hide the code within...  that seems like a somewhat bad side
effect to me...

in N6/win, it actually lets the text flow out of the box, causing a horizontal
scroll... while i believe i can fix this (based on code .jeff and i volleyed on
thelist), it will cause a vertical scrollbar in IE/win...

IOW, it's not done yet...

my personal site, any page with code... i have no test page set up for it since
my entire personal site serves that purpose...  IOW, the navigation can you
get there, but you gotta resize yer window to see it...


anyone here who wants to offer up suggestions, or create their own testbed,
feel free... but we *cannot* implement this if it hides blocks of content from
some users, no matter how inconvenient the textareas may be...
