To Enable Word Wrap in Notepad++
In Notepad++, the text entered in the text area scrolls continuously to the right unless the word wrap feature
is enabled, or turned on. Word wrap causes text lines to break at the right edge of the window and appear on a new
line, so all entered text is visible in the Notepad++ window. When word wrap is enabled, a paragraph of text will
be assigned a single logical line number even though it may display on multiple physical lines in Notepad++. Word

The first task is to enter the initial tags that define the Web page structure. Table 2-2 contains the HTML
tags and text used to create the Web page shown in Figure 2-1a on page HTML 35. In this chapter and through-

tables with line number references, rather than within the steps. The steps will direct you to enter the text shown
in the tables.
