Is this message's text wrapping on your screen?

No matter the size of my window, when I post a reply it looks as if it isn't wrapping to the window size. So I usually make it fit by typing each sentence on a new line. Horrible, I know. So, the question is: Is this paragraph wrapping to your window even if it's a smaller size than one page?

Seeing how this isn't a reply it's wrapping now so I guess I'll have to retest in a reply.

Thank you in advance,
Yours truly, Keep on keeping on, Keep on trucking, keep on your own side of the street, et cetera, et cetera,

Test Part Two

No matter the size of my window, when I post a reply it looks as if it isn't wrapping to the window size. So I usually make it fit by typing each sentence on a new line. Horrible, I know. So, the question is: Is this paragraph wrapping to your window even if it's a smaller size than one page?

Hmm, looks OK from here.
Maybe it's only a problem on certain forum sections.

I feel your pain. I like having the text slightly larger, but when I set my screen resolution to a comfortable size, the last few letters/words on the right side of the page are hidden and I have to scroll over to see them. I think it would help if they got rid of all the un-needed junk on the list on the left side of the screen. I really don't need or want to see a site map/list and advertisements while viewing threads.

There's a remedy for the ads and it'll cost you.
But trust me, it's worth it.

Looks fine in IE9 to me and I have definitely experienced that issue on other forums - looks like this one has an auto-sizing feature that works.

I use Firefox and it wraps OK down to a certain point/size of window, then it stops wrapping and requires me to scroll left/right to see all the print.

Maybe your screen settings are too large and you are not getting your window expanded enough to get past the point where wrapping can start working.

(does that make sense?)
