Well, I gave you an old handler for that -- and I just found a note to 
myself that it was deprecated. Here's a better way to add hard carriage 
returns, it's all built-in:

on wrapField pFld
   replace slash with slash&space in fld pFld
   put the formattedText of fld pFld into fld pFld
   replace space with empty in fld pFld
end wrapField

I should have double-checked before writing.
