wrap plain text

Confluence has no way to wrap plain text.  I am even afraid to start a discussion because I remember seeing desperate pleas lasting for a decade.

The only work-around that does not involve "asking friendly administrators to create a macro for you" seems placing the plain text inside the "pre" tag in the "source editor" (a little less-than, greater-than <> icon in the top right when editing, possibly a result of administrators installing the source editor plugin).  The opening "pre" tag needs a "style" attribute with a value "white-space: pre-wrap".

<pre style="white-space: pre-wrap">PLAIN TEXT WITH LESS-THAN AND AMPERSAND CHARACTERS CHANGED INTO &lt; and &amp;</pre>

Maybe this helps:
You can put the text in a table cell with fixed width.
