Description: Popup should have a resizable width according to the length of its text - long texts are displayed in an unreadable vertical column.

It also doesn't close.

Please see the attached screenshot showing the problem rooted in the Geo Coverage Description's popup dialog.]]>

Comment: This kind of tooltips were intended to be used with short texts. I think we should use another solution to show texts that big.

that spatial coverage now became already a scrollable div, but there should be other places still having a bit larger content.
We also have a larger white popup box somewhere, but I cant remember/find where

I don't really understand the presence of this text there. The original idea was it to be a brief description of the areas in the world that the dataset covers: "India", "South america and Caribe", "South african seaside" or things like that. Is the current one a generic description of India or is particularly related to the dataset?. What happens when geographic coverage spans through different countries? Can you confirm you need to display all this text?

If that's the case, we need a dedicated second-level page for this field (the ones with the yellow ribbon on the top). And we need to format the text: keep the BRs, bullets, etc. Currently it's unreadable.

Anyway: I think we should style intra-pane scrolls. We already added them for image metadata ( and we are going to need them.

Comment: yes, thats needed and I agree its tough to read. If its a separate page we would still show a preview?

Sure, a paragraph and then a "Read more" link with the same style as the already designed (arrow to the right).

But we should really think if all this text here is really useful.

Comment: Sorry Markus, I didn't read your "that's needed". let's go with the aux page then.

Diego, maybe this helps:
We ened to show everything for a dataset that is covered by the underlying EML. The example above is another tool we produce, the IPT, that allows to author this data and therefore also has a rendering.

I think its nice to have a single page view of that data and to not have to follow various pages. It also allows one to print or create a pdf from it (although looking at the IPT that layout would proabably be better for printing)

Comment: done by Tim when redesigning the maps in some commits this week or last
