I dont think you understand, I want what I work on and publish to be readable.
On my own system thats easy enough, and your method would work fine. But if you
publish to GitHub or other sites, they have their own view of what a proper
display should be.

For example with GitHub, you dont get to choose tab width, and you dont get to
choose wrapping modes. GitHub uses 8 width tabs, and doesnt wrap at all. So if
you have any long lines you have to horizontal scroll, and if you dont like tab
width then you need to use spaces.

Granted I could just set some user CSS, but then anyone else visiting my pages
wont get the benefit of that.

I would please ask that you not comment further on this off topic discussion.
Unless you have an on topic comment regarding breaking long links I am not
interested, thank you.
