Good Day: What happens if there is a shorter line than normal in
the middle of your text somewhere, or if the page has a horizontal
line to divide the text? I think there is more to this than what
the first idea came out to be. That's why you need to identifiy
everything. That's why my programming instructors pointed out in
more detail, than I can ever express.

Gene, that is a good analogy. But what I want to know is what
"reading command context(s)" this has an effect on. I'm imagining
only line-by-line reading, but . . .
Having something under the setting such as, "If a document has a
line longer than the number of characters you set, for line
reading it will be split into multiple virtual lines of the
maximum length you specify."
I also wonder if it's intelligent as far as splitting at word
boundaries, not hard and fast character counts. Mid-word splits
would make things potentially very ugly.
That setting, naked as it is, is not something that's intuitive,
clearly, just based on this topic. And I'm not saying that you're
arguing that it is, just restating the need for some context
regarding settings where the effect of same is in no way
immediately obvious to the uninitiated (and even the initiated,
much later on).
