Hum, ok, I do not get the fact you was talking about the savannah
documentation page. The most of the content of this page is generated
to HTML from texinfo.

Textinfo insert (generally @example) <pre> tags that blocks
natural redimensionning.

I'm not an expert of texinfo, I do not know how to prevent this.

You are right. I tried. In my case, it's ok unless the width is
smaller than 400px, but I use small font size.

But the current layout of savannah does not allow us to do something
about it. Doing something about would probably means recreating the
whole interface. I'm not against the suggestion but we have others
priority. Making savannah installable in less than 30 days on another
computer is one of them.

Finally, during the summer (3 month, beginning in june), I used to
work on a old computer, an Pentium with 120 with 32 Mo RAM, with a 14"
screen. Savannah was pretty confortable with this configuration,
unless you try to get this or
this urls
