here is an example of preformatted text not respecting form element
seems that most box calculations allow overwrites of other text areas
which muddles text in many situations. i have seen  things where
textstring prompt: <input...........
has the prompt overlap the input control as well .... 
can this bleedthru of content into other elements be prevented.

<p>One of the most common uses of cookies is saving user preferences
for reuse. Our example will reuse a background color selector from
<a href="jstutor6.htm#radio">tutorial 5</a> and save its setting.
Returning to the page will reset the color to the last setting selected.</p>

<p><strong>STEP 0: </strong>Copy the BakeCookie and EatCookie functions
into your project.</p>

<p><strong>STEP 1: </strong>Set up a global value for expiry date.</p>
var expdate = new Date();
expdate.setTime(expdate.getTime()+(5*24*60*60*1000)); // 5 days
<p><strong>STEP 3: </strong>Add a call from the color setting function
to bake a new cookie with any updates.</p>
