NOWRAP disables word wrap while NOFOLD passes white space characters
through unchanged and disables the normal rules for condensing repeated
whitespace chars to the space character. Right now, in Arena line-end
characters don't cause line breaks in the formatted document, but I guess
that is open to discussion (Arena implements nofold for tables but not as
yet for the rest).
