So vim does this as well? Such behavior is the only thing I absolutely *hate* 
in emacs. It is completely nonintuitive to word-wrap the text but not cursor 
movement. When one presses the down arrow, one naturally expects the cursor to 
go down to the next line of what is visibly presented on the screen (be it the 
same actual line or the next one), not down to the next line of a file whose 
structure which is not directly visible.

Best, :-)
