Yes! Iceweasel wrapping is similar to a browser; except
that dynamic wrapping in Iceweasel conforms to a specified
number of characters whereas most browsers wrap to fit
the window---or "viewer" as Nick Wirth would say. And yes,
URI are not broken, although they appear so in the composer.

Forgot to mention that my right hand has a small finger and
it seems compelled to strike the Enter key when the line
gets to about 72 characters. =8~) Ref. Lamport, _LaTeX_, page 91.

We were at crossed purposes here. I was just complaining
about HTML which runs on for hundreds of characters without
a line break. I don't put HTML into a message except an
attachment for a legitimate purpose.
Currently I can send a message using mutt or iceweasel or
ETH Native Oberon or a Web based interface to the server.
FWIIW almost all of my messages are sent with ETHNO. Just
my eccentric tastes.
Thanks for the help, ... Peter E.
