Just a small note regarding text width: the Code Listings used throughout
various documents should have no-wrap activated. It's sensitive material
(such as commands) and needs to be interpreted by the user correctly (as the
author wants). Having word-wraps inside Code Listings might have disastrous
results.

However, we can 'easily' adjust Code Listings to use hard-wrapping, such as

  # useradd -G wheel,users,audio,cdrw \
  -m -k username

However, this won't show up nicely for users who have high resolutions, as
Code Listings would be extremely small for them.

So I'm personally not sure what to do here. Until now, we've set forth that
the installation instructions force a 80-char width for Code Listings; all
other documents are free to do as they like.

Wkr,
