So if you only want to see the text in one line temporarily, or at least see 
it in a single package, the suggestions from Mark and Mark about setting the 
tooltip are pretty good. It seemed from your original post that you could not 
read the whole line, that it disappeared. Hence your suggestion of inserting 
returns in the right places. Hence the "dontWrap" suggestion. Is any of this 
addressing the problem?

As an aside, the interesting thing about inserting returns was that it did 
more than just make the line readable within the field width (dontWrap does 
that). It made actual lines, not virtual lines from the overLong text, and that is 
what I needed.
