For your print stylesheet
pre {
	word-wrap: break-word;
	white-space: pre-wrap; /* iCab 3.0 beta,  nobody else ?? */
	white-space: -moz-pre-wrap; /* Gecko */
	white-space: -khtml-pre-wrap; /* Safari, not working --  maybe on 
Konqueror khtml */
	white-space: -o-pre-wrap; /* Opera */
	}

This works fine in Opera and Gecko (with the vendor prefix).
Safari doesn't listen, unfortunately. I'm not sure about IE win.
