Thanks.. But actually, my emacs that comes with Red Hat 7.2 also does
not wrap either. I tried what you suggested, and various other
combinations. Emacs ignore s everything about column-fill in my
On the menu bar under help, the 'auto wrap' is not checked. I tried
'clicking' and 'tabbing' but could not get it to take this option. I
also went into 'customize option'. It says saved to .emacs, but when I
