Comment Type: question
Summary of Issue: 80 characters?
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
\"width is no more than 80 characters\" sounds arbitrary...do you actually intend to talk about \"line length\", which is not necessarily bound to just the number of characters, but can also be influenced by the size/shape of the typeface used?
