Overview: Account Wizard's Server dialog has text that is cut on the right 
margin. There is plenty of space for the text to display, it just needs to wrap 

- The paragraph that starts with "For multiple mail accounts, only one outgoing 
server needs to be specified. For most Internet Service Provi", appears on 
one line and then stops, it doesn't continue displaying or wrapping the rest 
of the line. 

- The next paragraph that start with "If you change the account you use to 
connect to the Internet or if you know that you can use your SMTP", appears 
on one line and then stops, it doesn't continue displaying or wrapping the 
rest of the line.

Is this just a display problem?  ...or does the server name get mangled?

this is just a layout problem. reassigning to... trudelle? this is an HTML DIV
inside XUL... I'll also CC hyatt

If there's a better tag I should be using, let me know. This is for a long
paragraph that needs to word-wrap, so <text> or <titledbutton> is not

I'll let hyatt determine if it is XUL or should go to layout.

Alecf, did hyatt use enough words for you to understand what he meant? :-)

hyatt, I assume you mean put some kind of width on the div... I'll try making it
the same width as the IFRAME, but it seems like layout should be doing this
automatically... it actually seems like it's TRYING but there's some rounding
error since it's only cutting of a few characters.

ok, so I don't know why this isn't wrapping, because lots of other divs in this
dialog do. hyatt, any clues? look at aw-server.xul

I have a fix which is low risk, and this looks REALLY unprofessional - this
isn't just polishing, this is sand- please try it if you don't believe me...
just follow the creation of an account to the third page.

removing PDT for reeval

and the account setup is one of the first places a new user sees and makes his 
impression of our product.

Reopen. It's better but not quite right.

1. NT and Mac: A couple of letters are being cropped on the right margin 
referring to "SMTP" and "connect". 
2. NT, Linux and Mac: Also notice that the Netscape graphic in the top right is 
cropped. Not as much on Linux.

This is good enough for now so verifying. 
I will look at the Wizard dialogs again after beta.
