"word processor" text files

I wish there were a way to edit "word processor"-format text files in
Emacs.  I don't mean .doc or anything like that, just .txt files with
no newlines except between paragraphs.  The idea is the text flows
automatically as you add stuff, or if you insert in the middle.
Newline ends a paragraph.

The actual goal is to AVOID using a word processor (right now I use
OpenOffice for this type of file, but I'd rather use Emacs).  The
usual reason is that I want to write some text to paste into a web
browser form.  The browser wants to fill text itself, and any newlines
in the input turn into incorrectly placed line breaks.

Am I missing something?
