Hi, All:

Does it make sense to support output cell with some pre-specified sizes for the output cell? If the output is bigger than the size specified, using the scroll bar so a user can see the full results using finite space of the screen real estate.  This will make navigation of the code easier if the output is long.  Any thought about this?

I tried to hack the CSS a little by putting overflow: auto or overflow: scroll and the max-height property for the output cell.  It seems working well in Safari but not Firefox.  (The <pre> element in Firefox does not seem to respect the max-height property of its container.)
