Is the partially-visible character always the last character on that
line, before the hard newline?  If so, I think I know where's the flaw
in the logic.  See below.

Do you understand why the value of frame-fringe-width is multiplied by

I think that using window-body-width is indeed better here.  It will,
for example, account for display margins.

Sorry, I don't follow.  Can you elaborate on when this could happen?

I don't see how this could be right, unless you only tested it with
text that is rendered using a single font.  move-to-column goes to the
Nth character starting from the left edge (forget tabs and
double-width CJK characters for a moment), so it will not DTRT when a
screen line displays characters of different size (as in with
different-size fonts).

The original code works in pixels (vertical-motion interprets the
column number as the number of pixels equivalent to that number of
frame's canonical characters), so it is not prone to this problem.

I believe the problem is that the code determines whether the line
should be wrapped based on this test:

    (shr-vertical-motion shr-internal-width)
    (when (looking-at " $")  <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
      (delete-region (point) (line-end-position)))

IOW, it assumes that if the character at the goal pixel coordinate
immediately precedes the newline, the line doesn't need to be wrapped.
But that will fail if that last character is unusually wide.
