Text escaping from box

I'm sure there's an actual term for this (see next post for photo), but I don't know what it is. I've only seen the one example so far.

    1. Oddly enough, the title of the discussion in question ( ) isn't using regular spaces- it instead uses a special character that LOOKS like a normal space, but is specifically designed to not allow line-breaks. I'm doing a little research now since this has popped up at least once before, and it may be a bug in certain browsers. We'll look into possible solutions; thank you for bringing this to our attention.

        The text inside the post is like that, too, but at least it's being held captive! I've replaced the title with a copy with real spaces in it so the board layout is unbroken in the meantime.

      2. Earlier today I saw that escape thing happen on what I call the Main Board where a topic title ran to the right, into where the poster's name would be. No page shot, though, sorry.
