Okay, I downloaded the source code to this Hugo game. It's actually a tutorial package; there are several HTML files that progressively flesh out the code for this game, with annotation. Pretty cool.

My only problem is this: the text in the HTML files does not conform to the size of my screen. This makes it very difficult to read!

Does anyone know if there's a way I can easily change the line length (or margin size or whatever it is I need to do) of these HTML files? I didn't see a menu option in Internet Explorer that would do the trick, so I'm thinking I'll have to go to go to --->View--->Source and alter some of the HTML and then save the file. That's about the extent of my HTML knowledge, folks!

Anyone?

I would save them as text with the .hug extension and use a code editor (or even Notepad) with line wrap in it. Unfortunately, this is one of the things that PFE doesn't do, so off the top of my head, I don't know a good freeware code editor to use. You could use the shareware version of Editplus or whatever, though.

D'oh! Yeah, I realized while I was trying to edit the file in Metapad that I didn't particularly need to see it in IE and that it was wrapped just fine. Sorry to take up time with this question; I knew there was an easy answer! :oops:

Well, your post does make me realize that I don't exactly understand why they're in HTML anyway.
