Anyone else having issues with the fixed width of this article? Broader than my display size.
Yes, Perens' long URL (upstream comment) horked it up.

Well, in this case a tinyurl would have defeated the purpose of the posting.
My Opera 8 splits the URL too.

A (reasonably) browser-independent approach would be to auto-insert <wbr> pseudo-tags either before or after slashes, commas, ampersands, etc., in "words" that exceed, say, 30 or 40 characters. Most browsers treat those as optional break locations, but they're not otherwise displayed and don't insert whitespace into cut-and-pasted copies.
