Re: How to go to next line on the screen instead of going to next line in the text?

In emacs, if you hit the down arrow key, the cursor will go to next
line in the text, i.e., the part after the first next '\n'.
However, sometimes when the line is long and is wrapped into several
lines on the screen, I wanna move between the screen lines, instead of
the text lines, just like what happens when you hit the down arrow key
in gedit or the notepad in Windows.
How to do that?
The best way I know is to use isearch (C-s) for two or three characters
before the one you want the cursor moved to and then isearch-exit which
I have bound to M-s. (I use a Dvorak layout so you may want to bind to
some other keychord) M-s is center-line in textmode but this is
overridden in the context of isearch.
