image showing text spillover in References section (54.01 KB, image/png)

image showing text spillover in References section

in the References section, the text of some citations spills over into column to the right.
mozilla/firefox multi-column layout only; ie and opera use 1 column so no problem.
possible relevant css differences:
  ok : <a class="external text" ...
  bug: <a class="external free" ...

browser: firefox
os: ms windows xp sp2

Either use shorter text or don't try to squeeze it into a three-column layout.

This is the web -- columns are not well supported by browsers, and long URLs don't interact well with environments that force frequent breaking (especially when most browsers won't break them).
