In Emacs 21.1 and later fringes are narrow bands on both edges of the frame in 
which are displayed line wrapping information (there may be other information 
displayed there but I do not know what it would be, I am not a developer of 
emacs) in the form of curved arrows.  From what has been said in this list 
previously they cannot be disabled.  You may want to check the list archives 
for more specific details.

Quite late.  But always welcome over here!

Well... I am new to the list as well as to emacs.  (Just one year
old.)  So, what are "fringes"?



(9) I will not include a self-destruct mechanism unless absolutely
    necessary.  If  it is necessary, it will not be a large red button
    labelled  "Danger: Do Not Push". The big red button marked "Do Not
    Push"  will  instead  trigger  a spray of bullets on anyone stupid
    enough  to  disregard  it.  Similarly,  the ON/OFF switch will not
    clearly be labelled as such. - Peter Anspach in "The Top 100 Things
