I rather like the behavior of the vi bundled with Solaris.  It wraps at the
80 character edge, but does _not break the line_.  Since the cursor does not
move with the line, this might not be suitable for Lynx, although scrolling
would seem to make it clear.  I also like most which sticks a "$" at the
right edge, but then most does horizontal scroll.  (Hint: if someone is
going to spend a lot of time anyway, working on right-left scrolling might
make more sense since there wouldn't be a need to break the line.)  $0.02
