We have been using different code for these that does the right thing. This was necessary primarily because of variable width fonts. <down> is bound to `visual-line-down', which moves the point to the next visual line and to the column that is closest on the screen (pixel wise), minimizing horizontal offset (in pixels). Other functions provided are `beginning-of-visual-line', `end-of-visual-line', `kill- visual-line', `kill-whole-visual-line'.
