It seems to me that the .chm version of the documentation
I could download from (Hungarian language; I can't check for some sort of explicit version as right now your server refuses connection, so here's the date: it was downloaded on 05/23/2003) has the following problem:

Any page where the source had examples and hence lenghty text within a <pre> </pre> element fails to be broken into several lines. The source extracted by Explorer's right-click feature doesn't have any line breaking characters. I suspect this error is due to the Unix/Windows line termination difference and Microsoft HTML Help Workshop would probably prefer the Windows style. 

The main issue is that the pages involved get the width of the <pre> </pre> element when displayed or printed, which renders them practically unreadable as all lines extend to several screen's width.

I hope it wasn't me messing up something and taking your time for vain.

Thanks for being there.

That's the meaing of PRE, do not break lines. Not a bug -> bogus
 [2003-05-25 05:01 UTC]
If I read correctly, Akos says that all the examples display on one line instead of multiple lines, which are intended to. That seems to be a bug for me... Derick?

They definitely don't. Atleast I couldnt find that anywhere in the .hu manual.

The pre-05/23/2003 version -- I insist -- had the problem,
but the HU .chm has already been rebuilt (and so has the EN one), the current version(s) is (are) OK.

Bogus -> closed, I prefer.
(Or you should add a `temporal discrepancy in the space-time continuum' category, which might not be your intention...)

Keep it bogus, there were no changes at all.

Any insectologist daring to face the fearful may arrange the encounter at,

in the now-out-of-date Hungarian php manual.
(This is a limited-time offer as I don't have any amount of webspace. No application fee, however, especially as the Open Publication License v1.0 is kept in sight;-)

I know the particular being is dead, but refuse to consider it never-existent. (That's the meaning of closed, not to
completely forget about past errors, though fixed they are.)
Yet if the creature eventually COULD fly out somehow -
and it did so and right at the page -,
one might feel quite embarrassed not to know of any particular reason that killed (or at least dewinged) it.

The scientific classification may remain bogus for ever, but then I hope not having any ``bogus'' of that size beneath my favourite wardrobe. Not even dead, closed, killed, extinct.
