Yeah, the main examples I could find were those with PRE:

Yes, I'd recommend that. I don't think that roughly 1/3 of a
reasonable window size, or 1/4 of the window size that I usually use
(because it's so annoying to resize for every rude site that wants to
dictate how wide my window has to be) is a "good portion".
I'd say that it's a browser issue, but it's not - it *should* be, but
until browsers behave, it's *our* problem (I use netscape, BTW).
The "printable page" version is somewhat better, and I've learned to
use that on annoying sites, but I don't think it's good enough.
