Editor like Notepad++ show line numbers and then have no line number for lines that wrap.  So some sort of indicator would do the job for wrapped text that is not a line break.

In my final note on crowd sourcing Pre I outlined the difficulties with code. However, we do not have an alternative html construct that does the job.

I think we should work on some basic format rules to enable formatting that does not obscure block structure when it word wraps.  I can pull down some examples to see what we can do. BUT this should be WCAG 2.1 only.

We need a bridge until suitable semantic code for developed for HTML.

Best, Wayne
