There are constants in Mailman/Archiver/HyperArch.py
class HyperArchive(pipermail.T):

    SHOWHTML = 0              # Eg, nuke leading whitespace in html manner.
    SHOWBR = 0                # Add <br> onto every line

If you chenge both to 1, then you will get long lines wrapped at
the end of the browser width.
