Almost.  There was word wrap, but the *whole story* was one long line!

Firefox and IE both slipped some HTML tags in the front of the document; 
the difference is, Firefox put in a "<pre>."  IE has always been the 
bad-boy browser.

But "<pre>" doesn't help my stories, because I refuse to word wrap a 
plain text document.  Issues like that are a major reason I came up with 
a text-to-HTML converter for my own web pages.  My LNH and 2011-2012 
text stories use it.  The problem with that is, it's finicky and I 
always have to upload the pages to see how they look.
