        Firefox.  Provided that the properties are set that way, of
        course.  For one thing, <pre /> elements’ content gets truncated
        unless fits into its respective place (or gets adorned with a
        scrollbar, or otherwise spills over its neighbor) by default,
        while all the rest get folded.

        Please consider the HTML document MIMEd, for instance, – it
        should show three of these cases.

This sentence is long enough and will be folded, per the p element default rendering.

This sentence is also long enough, but will not be folded, thanks to an explicit white-space: pre property setting.

This sentence is not much smaller, but will also not be folded, per the pre element default rendering.
