	Using MacOS X 10.3.6, I see the same thing in Safari 1.2.4 (based 
on KHTML), Opera 7.51, and OmniWeb 5.0.  Camino 0.8.2 (a Gecko-based 
browser from the Mozilla family, with a native Aqua user interface) 
and iCab 2.9.8 both seem to display the page with line-wrapping, 
which is presumably what you had intended.

	I'm not sure what to tell you about this particular problem.  I 
will tell you that it is common practice for people who are doing web 
page design to use a wide variety of browsers on a large number of 
platforms, to check and make sure that what they're doing comes out 
looking at least reasonable, if not exactly what they were trying for.
