Abstract Abstract
This document defines two strategies for handling long lines in This document defines two strategies for handling long lines in
width-bounded text content. One strategy is based on the historic width-bounded text content. One strategy is based on the historic
use of a single backslash ('\') character to indicate where line- use of a single backslash ('\') character to indicate where line-
folding has occurred, with the continuation occurring with the first folding has occurred, with the continuation occurring with the first
non-space (' ') character on the next line. The second strategy non-space (' ') character on the next line. The second strategy
extends the first strategy by adding a second backslash character to extends the first strategy by adding a second backslash character to
identify where the continuation begins and thereby able to handle identify where the continuation begins and thereby able to handle
