And I thought the correct netiquette was to never put hard carriage returns in sentences (like I am adding to this one). You, the reader, turn on word wrap on your end. That way, the mail adapts to any size screen and font you wish to use. If it runs off your screen, that's a problem with your mail reading software, is it not?

Am I wrong?
