Are you asking about line wrapping?

You have a maximum-width constraint on the #container element, so several items are wrapping around to the next lines. Is that what you mean? If not, I may have misunderstood the question — please describe the issue in a little more detail.

Also, when posting code, be sure to use the instructions for code formatting in the Markdown Cheatsheet pop-up below the "Add an Answer" area. :arrow_heading_down:
