Really really really long summary text causes the show_bug.cgi 'Last Modified' date to wrap (but it does have to be quite long, to be honest)

(Is that long enough? :)

We should <nobr> the date stuff. (As discussed in previous bugs regarding
wrapping, |white-space: pre;| isn't portable enough yet)

OK, that wasn't long enough...

One issue with this is what happens if you have a narrow browser window. Theres
no |white-space: break=if-aesthetic;| css property....

Thoughts?

Why is it such a big deal if it wraps? When it does, you get:

which isn't so bad. It has to be _really_ cramped to get:

I don't think this is a bug, really.

Reassigning back to Myk.  That stuff about Gerv taking over the User Interface

very sorry about the spam.

The CSS rule is portable enough, especially by now and for a nit like this, and
should be used in lieu of nowrap.

Actually, I'm pretty much against using nbsp, as it makes it impossible for the
browser to do a nice wrap that suits the window size. In a small window (or when
you use a large font), if you make the Last Modified date unwrappable, the
summary would be wrapped instead, which could look funny instead. And sometimes,
when using nbsp extensively, a horisontal scroll bar appears, as the browser
cannot wrap one or more of the lines. This makes the whole page be wider than
100%, making all text on the page wider that 100%, in which case you have to use
the horisontal scrollbar extensively while reading the page.

Furthermore, I really don't see the problem in this wrapping:

Apart from the fact that it rarely occurs, I still find it very readable when it
occurs.

This bug has not been touched by its owner in over six months, even though it is
targeted to 2.20, for which the freeze is 10 days away. Unsetting the target
milestone, on the assumption that nobody is actually working on it or has any
plans to soon.

If you are the owner, and you plan to work on the bug, please give it a real
target milestone. If you are the owner, and you do *not* plan to work on it,
please reassign it to nobody@bugzilla.org or a .bugs component owner. If you are
*anybody*, and you get this comment, and *you* plan to work on the bug, please
reassign it to yourself if you have the ability.
