Since ZWiki appears to generate the email directly from the
original source format, on the last edits to the website that
I did, I deliberately keep the editing line length of the
text contents short, anticipating how these edits would look
when sent out as email. I think the fact that you found the
result more readable confirms my proposal that ZWiki should
do such line folding automatically during the preparation
of the email.

I can make this change on the MathAction site and then
propose a patch to the ZWiki developers.
