Hi all,

Imagine that you want to print a long pre line, wich has a vertical scroll bar (like this http://www.richstyle.org/web.php),
When you want to print it you'll have 2 choices:
- Either activating ward-wrap (using white-space: normal), then you'll lose ASCII-line-breaks and tabs.
- or you'll keep line-breaks and tabs, then you'll lose the rest of the line!

Don't you think that there should be a way to print both line-breaks/tabs and there rest of the line?

Best regards, 
- Anas R.
