#2226: Support Theme: Large blocks of code result in double scroll bars

 For what ever reason, using the code button or backticks to demarcate
 blocks of code yields pre and code HTML elements nested together. They
 both have CSS set to `max-height: 40em;`. In lengthy code that contains
 long lines, the included code's width exceeds the container's width, so a
 horizontal scroll bar appears for the inner `<code>` container. There's
 also a vertical scroll bar due to the length of the included code. When
 the horizontal scroll bar is added, the inner `<code>` container's height
 exceeds the outer `<pre>` container's height, so it too displays a
 vertical scroll bar, resulting in double bars. If the outer container's
 max-height property were slightly larger than the inner, the double scroll
 bar should never appear.

 The following attached screenshot came from this forum post:

 The browser is the latest available FF for Ubuntu. The same occurs for all
 Ubuntu browsers I have installed. Container's growing when scroll bars are
 added may be an Ubuntu only thing. I haven't been able to test other O/Ss.
