Huh. Guess I'm the other way around, as I use a proportional font for 
non-table text, so I can type as much as I want, ignoring the line ends.
(oops, like these.)

I also occasionally like to resize the text window and have the client 
reformat the paragraphs.

I get so peeved at AOL'ers (like my sister) that--aside from forwarding 
pure drivel--send it in multiply-indented "> >> > >>" lines that have had 
the carriage returns *removed*, and then reformatted by multiple 
incompatible mail clients (or the hoseheads operating it). GAAAA!

If I had a Drivel Filter, I'd use it in a flash.
