<h4>The Problem:</h4>
<p>
When you reply to some emails, the quoted reply appears on one
very long line.
</p>
<p class="nowrap">
It's usually caused by someone using a lame email program
(not to mention any names, but I've seen it most often with users of
<a href="http://www.microsoft.com/outlook/">particular programs</a>)
that doesn't correctly wrap outgoing email messages; they just send a single,
long line of text for each paragraph.
</p>
<p class="nowrap">
This isn't a problem when you're reading emails from people who don't realize
they're using a broken mailer, because Mozilla automatically wraps the lines
for you.  But when you go to reply to it... Hello, horizontal scrollbar.
</p>
<p>
Mozilla provides a useful menu option for dealing with unruly emails like
that; just hit <code>Edit &gt; Rewrap</code> and you're done, right?  But
it has the unfortunate side effect of moving the cursor to the very end of
the email, regardless of where you had it before.  Wouldn't it be nice to
have it stay where you put it?  Heck, for that matter, wouldn't it be nice if
you didn't have to worry about it at all?
</p>

<h4>The Solution:</h4>
<p>
<b>AutoRewrap</b>.  Just install this handy little (6KB) extension into
<a href="http://mozilla.org">Mozilla</a> or
<a href="http://mozilla.org/products/thunderbird/">Thunderbird</a>,
and it does the rewrapping for you, as soon as you start a reply.
No extra keystrokes needed on your part, either to do the rewrapping
or to put the cursor back where you wanted it!
</p>
<p>
<a href="installation.html">Install it today</a>, and never worry again
about replying to broken emails!
</p>

<h4>The Author:</h4>
<p>
<a href="mailto:d.perry@utoronto.ca">David Perry</a>, a Mozilla enthusiast
and XUL hacker with an itch to scratch.  This is my second (relatively)
full-fledged extension, though I've done bits and pieces on a few others
as well.
