Re: read words when moving accross newlines


It seems to be myself who did a quick test!
I will retest with the same computer, take more precise report from
the user and report again.
The phenomenon I can see now is: if the first line is end with dot,
comma and so on, M-f reads "dot" and the word on the top of next line
at the same time and cursor is on the dot mark.
It might be really an intended functionality I think. Is that true?
