Do you read #gopher on a phone, tablet, or some other heathen device which can't properly display text wrapped at 80 columns like God intended? Please visit gopher://zaibatsu.circumlunar.space:70/0/~solderpunk/files/text-wrapping-experiment.txt on your device and tell me the *widest* number of columns which renders neatly for you.
@solderpunk reading it in lynx running in termux, I'm able to pinch zoom. I can then read comfortably at 50-60 characters. But that probably doesn't help you much for formatting for the more popular clients.
