[Mailman-Users] mailman archive doesn't word wrap

I'm having a problem with my archive not doing line wrapping, ie, each paragraph in a message shows as an infinitely long line that requires horizontal scrolling to read. The following message was posted on this list a couple of years ago, but the thread ended and I didn't see any further comment. Does anyone know if this is still applicable? Is it a global change or can it be done list by list? Are ISPs generally willing to make such a change?
