In FrontPage, in code view, how to wrap text?

My question says it all. The text goes off the screen and I have to scroll to
see it. I looked at the similar questions and none seemed to get to the issue.

Show us your page, please. Is it possible that you are entering a long
string of characters without spaces?

If not that then I am not able to visualize the code. I'm trying....

But in code view, if you keep entering text it keeps going off to the right,
whether there are spaces or not. When this happens a scroll bar appears for
you to navigate to the remainder of the line. The "End" button also works.

When the para above (without a line break) is pasted into FrontPage, it all
appears on one line. In OE it breaks by itself at "navigate", for me at
least.

You can make a line break at any time in Code view (using the Enter button).
This does NOT affect how the text is presented on the screen. Tags such as
<br /> or <p> control this. HTML will change any occurrence of one or more
spaces to a single space, so there can even be trailing spaces at the end of
a line, all but one of which is ignored

In FrontPage 2003:
Tools->Page Options - General tab
Near bottom in Code View options tick "Word Wrap" box

In All versions:
Tools->Page Options - Code Formatting tab
Set right margin to 90 characters (adjust for your screen) - In FP 2003
set this to 999 characters in conjunction with Word Wrap tick box above.
Clear box "Allow line breaks within tags"
Also set line breaks for each tag as required.

In Code View, use right click then Reformat HTML
