Please fix the "gap" in longer lines!

  1. When displaying longer lines in TS posts, there occurs a 'gap' within part of the text, and always at the same position.
    This is particularly irritating if you try to give someone exact instructions.

    The 'gap' of one space occurs at position 51 in such a line:
    after correction, in pos. 71 now! GREAT
    123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890
    aaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbccccccccccddddddddddeeeeeeeeeegggggggggghhhhhhhhhhgggggggggghhhhhhhhhh

    It makes no difference if within a quote or not.
    The above lines were typed in one 'go' without any space!

    Someone PLEASE fix this!
    Thank you.

    Nothing to fix here, this is an standard feature so that posts won't break width formatting. I don't think this actually inteferes with the overall user experience.

    Especially in HJT logs you will find long path-names for program files.
    That's why probably not many people get 'confronted' with this 'cutoff'.
    Guess we'll have to live with it.
    Thanks Julio.

    To SOcRatEs:

    Not really, but ffff shows shorter than gggg when aligned with the numbers.

    Julio, could you please increase that gap from 50 to 60?
    That way we can give proper boot.ini instructions, without 'gaps'.
    Thx much in advance.

    Up to 70 now, seems to work ok with our current fixed width layout :)
