What is the expected output?

This tt text should be monospaced and wrap as if one line of text even though the code has newlines, spaces, and tabs. It should be the same size as


What do you see instead?

    This issue isn't a problem with Blueprint CSS but with how IE7 renders the code in the file /blueprint/tests/parts/elements.html.

    This issue is not to do with the elements but the closing tag on line 228.

    If you move the tag onto the next line, like this:

    <code> Not indented


    it resolves the issue in IE7 and the text can wrap as intended.

    Weird, I know!

    The code I meant to include above was:

    <code> Not indented
