If there's an 'info-mcl' FAQ, this question should almost certainly be in
it - I've seen it come up a couple of dozen times (I think I posted it
myself three or four times ... :-) ) and have yet to see a satisfactory
solution ...

I don't think the various auto-fill examples really *are* a solution,
because - if I remember rightly - they change the text by inserting CRs,
whereas what's really wanted is something that performs word-wrapping the
way TextEdit does it, so that if you resize the item, the text is
reformatted appropriately.

If Santa St Clair is listening, I think there's a growing community of
frustrated would-be word-wrappers who'd like to see this in MCL
2.0.2/2.1/3.0 ...
