Hi all

I am developing a remote editor for my website, allowing my to edit my site remotely.
This includes a file browser, etc.

I am looking for each filename/folder name to stay on one line. Currently as the line becomes too long then the names spill onto the next line, which doesnt look very nice! :-)

Thanks in advance

note that you could use nested <ul> elements for your file tree.  that should be semantically better.
