That would be the infamous Point of No RETURN, right? :-)

Well, would that same fiscal effect explain why you don't have an email
client that won't wrap text to fit the display window? :-) 

Most of us here on the Internet use "return" most of the time to delimit
*paragraphs*, and let the line breaks fall where they may. I will plead
guilty to sometimes forcing line breaks.

Hmm. Ya think maybe this is the culprit? Would that be Netscape Gold?

That *may* have been before Netscrape had such an option in the mail
client. Even if you're all tapped-out from buyng a supercooled
ultra-low-noise preamp, you can afford to upgrade your Netscape. Unless
you're running Win 3.1, of course. :-)
