Perl Best Practices has a format problem

Perl Best Practices has a format problem.

A number of pages have odd layouts in their code examples (multiple scroll bars etc) However the Start of Chapter 12 is not correctly wrapping. See following page

  • Hi vagnerr,

    Thanks for contacting O'Reilly and reporting this issue. I reviewed
    the rendered electronic content for Chapter 12: Regular Expressions,
    and there doesn't seem to be a wrapping issue. The upload or
    conversion into Safari Books Online may have been corrupted or
    affected and I submitted an internal ticket to review and possibly
    reload the content files to see if this will correct the layout and
    scroll issues you reported.

    • Please try reviewing the page on something other than IE. The problem is caused by the 3rd/4th paragraph where there is a word starting "cut-and-paste-and-modify-slightly-and-oh-now-it-doesn't......>" because it is one very long hyphenated word some browsers are trying to render it as wide a possible. may I suggest breaking the word up a little to give those browsers a chance.
