Well the easy way would have been to change the wrapping with a
"white-space: pre-wrap" CSS style. But, when I tried that, it produces
rather bad rendering since those synopsis sections have white-space
"columns". So to really fix things someone first has to change the doc
generation to not use the rather bad white-space column format.
