1) What makes a thread become too wide for the computer screen?

2) How do I find it?

3) How do I correct it?

4) Look at Long Path's post. (11/16/99 02:22AM)
He entered the term "quote" but it is printed "code"! Is this the problem?

It becomes wide because the software can't see a break or space and treats it as one word.

This happens with long URLs or like in Futo's thread "Can't....catch...up"
I edited out the final "..." yesterday so the date of responses would be shown

Aha! Thanks, DC. That at least gives me something to look for.

Mille Grazie!
