Why would emacs need to
add quotes for you? Even if it did, why would quotes need more than
Maybe I don't understand correctly how auto filling works.
I only want things to move to a new line when I am beyond 80 columns,
I want a space to activate reshuffling of my text only when I'm beyond
the 80 column barrier.
It seems setting fill-column to 79 would do that. I also have code
in my .emacs
to highlight lines that are longer than 80 columns. Hopefully auto
filling will take care
of most long lines before that is needed.
