Formatted Code Area is too big
When a posting uses the "Code tags" to post code the code is displayed in a separate text area. When the code reaches a certain number of lines scrollbars appear. However, I believe the maximum height of this code area is too big. For an example of what I mean see these two postings:
The height of the code area will display about 150 lines of code. After this the scrollbars appear. In my case I find this verry difficult to use. First I need to scroll the web page down to the bottom of the code area to see the visible code. However, I can't scroll the code down because the bottom of the scrollbar is not visible, so I have to scroll the web page up a lttle to grab the scrollbar and then scroll the code.
I think the the height of the "code area" should be limited to about 45 lines of code so that this area is completely visible without scrolling the entire page. If the user wants to look at the code in more detail, then they can use the scrollbar to see the code.
I use 1024 X 768 resolution, so I understand the number of lines that are visible can vary for different resolutions, so maybe the max height of the code area can vary by resolution? Or maybe this can be a user setting?
