	If you're going to use a command-line tool, take the time to 
learn "par".  It reformats much more intelligently, although it has a 
higher learning curve.  You would need to install it as additional 
software under either FreeBSD or Solaris, but at least for FreeBSD 
there should be a port definition for it.

	I doubt that you will regret the time you take to learn "par" over "fmt".
