There is a bugzilla entry on this topic. Revolution requires white
space to wrap. Perhaps there will be a change.
To complicate things, if the width of the line is greater than 32K
pixels, the field is not displayed correctly.
However, if you are serious... The work to make up a number formatting
function that wraps is nothing compared to the work to do indefinite
digit math. You might use it in a setprop that is for an alternative
to the text property of the field and use it to set the text with the
formatted value. Too bad we can't make setprops for built-in
