~sircmpwn/lists.sr.ht#143: 
Long text lines are not wrapped

Long text lines in messages are not wrapped, and they cause the appearance of horizontal scrollbars, which makes reading hard.

Example:

https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/sr.ht-discuss/%3CuR3VBoz5iuqpEqy0YPi2SIgKJuW-Bv2Lqlo1e3SbCkNC7WeW79tOtlGmVzG3D_cAqBIldietHJQAB2nNaGyj1sefvhLpKr7zvtet7-NHYOE%3D%40protonmail.com%3E#%3CuR3VBoz5iuqpEqy0YPi2SIgKJuW-Bv2Lqlo1e3SbCkNC7WeW79tOtlGmVzG3D_cAqBIldietHJQAB2nNaGyj1sefvhLpKr7zvtet7-NHYOE=@protonmail.com%3E

(Incidentally, the old Mailman archiver also doesn't wrap long lines, so this seems an unwelcome blast from the past.)

Adding white-space: pre-wrap fixes the issue. It's much more usable than the horizontal scrolling, with the exception of git patches on mobile.

While not perfect, I think this is a big improvement as many emails are not manually wrapped.
