Re: Obtain X / HPOS with move_it_to at eol when buffer-display-table lin

Thank you, Eli, for the suggestion to stop IT before it gets to the new line 
(which is displayed using the display-table entry).

The argument of it.last_visible_x is important for the very last line of the 
visible window, or else IT will not continue looking for POS until it reaches 
the window-end.

I am assuming by your comments that we are looking for EOL_POSITION minus 1 
point, and from there I should examine the character at that location to obtain 
its width and then add that width to it.current_x in order to get the X of the 
pilcrow beginning ....

This is a work in progress and I'll keep plugging away as time permits.
