For example the function rasterize does wrap the text in the details
correctly. In the PDF the text disappears from the page. In the online
help pages (?rasterize) there is wrapping, but it looks quite ugly.
Maybe the .Rd describe environment is not very good at multi-line
descriptions? So, Narayani, you can read the documentation online using
R itself, which does show all the text.
