10 I'm not seeing a problem here. Sure, the lines are long but my screen
11 is large and my resolution is high. A quick play with firefox and konq
12 shows that the text reformats itself quite elegantly when you resize
13 your browser window to say, 2/3 of screen width. I think that's a
14 better solution than imposing some arbitrary line length on everyone
15 no matter their screen size and resolution.
