I showed johnsonm the output of xmlto man foo.xml, and he
suggested that you line wrap long lines inside <para>s so all
viewers can display them properly.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2001-12-11 17:48:20 UTC
The reason it doesn't do this at the moment (except for it being 'out of the 
way') is that it would require the stylesheet to be quite smart about it.  I 
don't know groff well enough to know what things at the beginning of the line 
are 'special'.

As it is, we don't escape things like '\' in a para, which we ought to.  I'd 
rather not have to go hunting for '.' and whatever else as well if I can help 
it. :-)

Which viewers in particular don't display these long lines properly?
