Summary of Issue: Concerns about 80 characters width limit
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
Having into consideration that the number of characters per line may be affected by different parameters (window size, screen resolution, font-size...) that are not controllable by the content creator, this requirement may be quite difficult (not to say impossible) to fulfil.

Additionally readability may be also equally affected when the line width is to narrow, so I don\'t understand why to put just top limits in case of put any.

Proposed Change:
