The Description area in bug viewing form is inside a <pre> tag. It might be a good idea to make it wrapped.

But that tends to lose information. Sometimes important information can be found in the linebreaks. I also believe that we tend to wrap things when you type them, so that long lines won't get into the database. But I don't remember for sure, so I'm testing it with this paragraph...
Yes, it does, so I'm marking this INVALID.
Verif, but see also bug #11901. Terry, surely you can do a conversion to HTML paragraphs?

Not everything is nice text paragraphs! For example, sometimes: - People list items out separately (like this!) - or they do ASCII artwork - or other things. Converting back and forth is a hard problem. Right now, Bugzilla just says "everything is plaintext, stored pre-wrapped in the database". A fine, consistant model. Other consistant models are possible, but they are different, and converting between them is not trivial.
moving to Bugzilla product reassign to default owner/qa for INVALID/WONTFIX/WORKSFORME/DUPLICATE
