Sometimes a long line of text within a message should be preserved at its original length, rather than wrapped to the 72-column limit. When replying to text, the quoted text in the reply *does* maintain the line length. However, when forwarding a message inline as plain text, the long lines are wrapped to the wrap-column specified in preferences. In particular, if a text/plain message (without f=f) is forwarded inline as text/plain, the line length should be maintained. Additionally, a text/html line containing text with <pre> blocks should also maintain the line length. This is currently not possible because the plain text composer always rewraps lines; quotes are not wrapped only because they have a style applied to them. Bug 262475 has been opened to request the infrastructure to implement a similar style for unquoted text, supporting this bug.
