  Sample input:
WrapText (
  Sample output:
Some moderately long sentence that needs to be wrapped to a shorter line width

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

I needed to wrap the output of a templated html email to a maximum line length, so I came up with this.

In short it wraps any lines longer than a certain width, breaking at space characters. Be aware that words longer than the specified width will break across lines.

I intend to add some test shortly. Please let me know if you come across any issues.
