Yes, that is the danger of using <pre>.  It is not created by this new
style, just amplified by it (due to the restricted screen real-estate).
The great thing about not using tables is that the huge <pre> doesn't
cause the entire page to scroll right-left.

The problem will be lessened if we use a slightly smaller font.  Which
brings up the question of exactly which of the stylesheets we are going to
use.  I suggest that we NOT include ALL those alternate stylesheets.  In
fact I suggest we start with just a single stylesheet (or at most a few)
and we can add more later.

Right now it seems the default is style/css/manual-sbar-right-fix15.css.
I suggest using instead manual-sbar-right-90pc.css (although I think we
may need to go even a little smaller).  I also think it would be best to
consolidate all those @imports so that, in the default case, only a single
stylesheet needs to be loaded.  The alternate stylesheets can still use
imports, but we want to minimize transactions for the default case.

And if you don't feel like doing that, I'm +1 on committing it as is and
we can fix it later.

Will do.
