    Try to resize the application window (maybe).

    Maybe you should turn the spellchecker on first?

    booooooo hissssss yourself.

    You've had three hours to answer Carlos' question and you've just shown
    that you're online, so you clearly don't really care about an answer.
    But I'll have a guess:

    dynamic wrap probably uses 'dynamic programming' to find the wrap
    points. static wrap probably doesn't. Look on wikipedia for more
    information about word wrap and dynamic programming.

    Since you have not said what program you are using, I am making a wild guess here.

    I think "dynamic word wrap" means that the display of the file content on the screen wraps at word endings but the text in the file is not actually wrapped, while "static word wrap" actually wraps the text in the file.

    I'm guessing that you are using "kwrite".

    don't think that is it. dynamic wrap applies the wrapping on-screen only,
    while static wrapping actually inserts line breaks into the text.
