How do I set it so that the scrollbar doesn't show up and it goes to a new line once it reaches the end of a line in the currently-sized window?

Yes, I think that is what I was using.  I kept playing with
it and finally figured that I needed to change that to get
it to work.

I had created the original by cutting and pasting an ASCII
text file and then formatting things like the font
and adding in bullets.  For some reason, I only had the
paragraph problem mentioned above with the first few lines.

On a related note, an html file created in Composer shows up
perfectly in Firefox/Mozilla but has some formatting
idiosyncracies in MSIE.  Is there any way to get around that?
FWIW, when I create a page from MS Word, it has all kinds
of problems in Firefox.  Is there a browser-neutral html 
editor?
