I've just noticed today that forum posts will break words, and not just at a hyphen, rather than wrapping the entire word to the next line. I checked on a couple of lines and it isn't by character length as they were different (one broke at 260 chars., one at 268.)

Noticed on both my browsers (Firefox 63.0 and Chrome 70.0.3538.77, both up to date, on Ubuntu-flavoured Linux.)

Anyone else notice this?

There is a thread in Number crunching discussing issues with the forums displaying incorrectly.

Don't look at the forums in Android on a small handheld device. You'll be going ape. ;)
