    I must be out of the loop. Ted, what happened to your self-signed certificate?

      I believe he’s switched to using https.www.google.com.tedunangst.com instead now

        yeah what’s up with this?

        It’s a bit of a weird post to make, considering that the div.content tag on his page does

        .content {
            max-width: 50%;
            margin-left: 200px;

          100% this. Also, mark up your AbstractImplementationOfBorrowCheckerFactoryPatternMatcher with my favorite obscure HTML tag, <wbr>:


          You could also use a zero-width space to similar effect, but the ZWSP will copy/paste into an editor. This can be very confusing.

            Adding HTML to alter the formatting of some text just feels super icky. Will this really improve things vs break-all? You may still have to break mid”word” anyway depending on actual width to be occupied.

            1. 1

              What’s the nature of your objection? That <wbr> is like using <i> instead of <em>? Would you rather use the zero-width space to annotate break opportunities because it is text rather than markup?

              I’ve actually mostly used <wbr> in anger in headings rather than body text. Manually injecting break opportunities produced much more pleasant results than the arbitrary breaks the browser could provide. That’s subjective, of course. If overflow-wrap: break-word gives good enough results I didn’t mean to suggest adding <wbr> is necessary — I just wanted to share a related tool I’ve found useful.

              There is also &shy;, the “soft hyphen”. This character can be used to mark a break opportunity in regular text. This was particularly useful before hyphens: auto existed, though some browsers would render it as a regular hyphen. But again, for programmatic identifiers, it will copy/paste which users may find confusing.
