I posted a 'medical' question, and included several URLs of my preliminary research on the term/phrase in question -- so that the answerers would not have to start all from scratch.

Unfortunately, the ProZ site engine happens to format the page in such a way that long URLs stretch the page horizontally -- the only cumbersome way to read such pages is by using the browser's horizontal scroll bar at the bottom of the window. At this, some site users become quite frustrated (while my intention was to help everyone by posting glossary links already found -- not just plain "Google hits").

Some URLs are just long, and I don't think that including URLs should be banned just because they are long. They might be useful and ergonomic, e.g., because they point to a very specific page of an online glossary.

Would the ProZ site designers be able to adjust the system so that long URLs wrap, thus making the usage of KudoZ more comfortable?

Thank you in advance.
