I request that you change the way that the stories are formatted. They currently scroll far to the right past the area where the text is visible. It is a chore to use the scroll bar to to see an entire long paragraph all on a single row of text. Copying the entire story to put it in a local word processor is also an unnecessary task.

Stories are kept in plain text format to keep storage and badwidth to a minimum.

One suggestion is: Right-click on the link to a story in the StoryBank and save it to a local drive. From there it can be opened in Notepad or Wordpad.

Is there any way to get a web browser to automatically wordwrap? My efforts in the past met with universal failure in IE, Netscape, and now Firefox is similarly uncooperative.

OK...

We're looking at ways of inserting line-breaks in the middle of paragraphs to force word-wrapping of stories in the bank. Would anyone object to this being done to all texts so far deposited and those that are deposited in future?
