Bug Description

In ask.openstack, a line of code too long inside a code block will be truncated and spread over several lines. As far as I understand it, the goal of the <pre> block is to have the line quoted verbatim, and so this truncation should not happen.

You can find an example in my answer here: https://ask.openstack.org/en/question/3800/swift-s3-error-no-module-named-s3_token/?answer=3811#post-id-3811

The last line has been truncated. I'd prefer to have a way to scroll horizontally instead (a la StackOverflow/StackExchange).

We don't really encourage the use of the <pre> block and suggest to use markdown, as it seems you did in the answer. I don't have a strong opinion on how to represent long lines, as I usually find the horizontal scrolling very annoying. What do others think?

I think the use of a code block should mean the text is rendered without any wrapping or other modification
