Interesting idea.  I'm not sure if the tigris stylesheet will let me do 
this, but I can give it a try.  Although, I will repeat again, there 
should be no need to scroll horizontally once we eliminate the big <pre> 
blocks.  Things seem to work fine for me down to about 200 pixels wide 
on this page: where 
there are no <pre> blocks.

I have this fixed in my local version, where I've replaced the 
blockquote/table thing with a <div class="example"> and some css.  I'm 
still setting it off from the main text a little (magin: 2em, padding: 
1em) because I think it makes it clearer that these are supposed to 
break the main flow of text.

That's possible.  At the moment, it is constrained by the size of the 
feather graphic.  We would need a smaller one if we want the header to

I like it to be set-off from the main text, but right-aligned should work.

Thanks for the feedback.
