So it's better to get that sort of effect for _everyone_, instead of
just those on narrow screens and clients that don't grok format=flowed?

I don't get it.

My point was that format=flowed allows you to do that and still provide
readability in clients not supporting that capability (which generally
are not going to be "unusual", eg, very narrow screens).

But perhaps that's less important to you than...uh, whatever it is
that's outweighing it for you; it isn't clear to me what that is.

But, I suppose it doesn't need to be.
