CSS - Cool pre formatting effect

On PlanetMySQL, I noticed a cool pre style. You can also try by placing CSS code similar to following for pre HTML tags.


.phpcode, pre {
overflow: auto;
padding-left: 15px;
padding-right: 15px;
font-size: 11px;
line-height: 15px;
margin-top: 10px;
width: 93%;
display: block;
background-color: #eeeeee;
color: #000000;
max-height: 300px;
}


Long text of code that never ends cause we just want to demonstrate the css effect here on this very very very long line.

Very cool, thanks for pulling this out and passing it on! I've been going nuts trying to get my Pre tags to no override my other columns in my blog. I didn't know CSS could do something this cool.

Hanford,
Ever since I found this CSS effect, I have been using it on most of my sites. CSS is pretty powerful indeed.

Tried using pre tag..but it always aligns my text to the center of the screen...Any way of avoiding the center alignment with pre tag....I want the default left alignment in the JSP for the text enclosed within the pre tag
