Thank you Chuck for the suggestion. Ufortunately it had no effect;
I'm not sure why.
I have found many entries on the net with people wanting this basic
functionality from emacs, but no solutions on how to do it. Every
"word processor" that I have ever used does this automatically, but it
seems to be completely foreign to emacs. I am almost certain that I
am missing something.
This is what I need emacs to do, what I am (possibly incorrectly)
calling "Word Wrap":
Break lines at spaces when the lines exceed the margin amount, without
actually inserting carriage returns into the file, so that files can
be viewed in a way that pleases most normal human beings without
changing the file contents by inserting newline characters.
There has to be a simple way to do this. Does anyone know how?
