Yes, APRSdos and WinAPRS and maybe others provide marks or
boundaries to show the operator where the line-wraps are on the
D7 and D700.  This way they can feel certain that there messages
are pleasantly displayed on receipt.  I think WinAPRS does it
automatically based on knowing the type of station being sent
to.
