I guessed as much about the problem is word-wrapping.  It is
nearly obvious from the word nowrap, isn't it? :-)

But thanks anyway for the explanation.  It would help non
Japanese speaking people to understand the problem.

However, you didn't answer half of my question, "which
file".  I also guessed it was probably one of the Japanese
translation you submitted to Japanese mailing list.  Since
your first message lacked exact details, it is more natural
for me to ask you to give us more information than spending
time doing guess work.

It would be much easier for me to make the change if you
followed the following course:

  1. Post a patch for the above change
  2. State where exactly the problem occurs
  3. (Optional) Send URL of HTML files before and after your

This would allow me to directly see the difference easily.
You know, we have something like "Seeing is worth more than
100 explanations" in Japanese proverb. ;-)

Now I understand the problem so you don't have to do 2 and 3
anymore.  Could you provide a patch for the above change?
(I assume you have patched file on your disk.  If not, just
say so and I'll make the change manually).
