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.
