How do I make the text in a comment wrap instead of being truncated?

In one of my comments, where I am showing the path of degrees between someone and me, the text refuses to wrap and is truncated at the end of the line after I save the comment.

See example here:  link to comment

A typical reason for a line not wrapping is that there are no spaces in it. You could try adding spaces to separate names in your example.
I do have spaces in the line.  Are they not showing up when you see the comment?

In the first problem line, there are two spaces before the line is truncated.

In the second problem line, there are 6 spaces before the line is truncated.
Looks good if each line is supposed to be in parenthesis.

I believe its a bug in this forum software and is often triggered by the type of font used. It appears it may also be triggered by the use of sub/super script.

It is possible to copy the apparent truncated line to see the full text that's not truncated at all (only truncated in the display)
