;;; Commentary:
;; This library provides a global mode which displays form feed
;; characters as horizontal rules.
;; Install from Melpa or Marmalade, or add to `load-path' and use
;; (require 'page-break-lines).
;; Use `page-break-lines-mode' to enable the mode in specific buffers,
;; or customize `page-break-lines-modes' and enable the mode globally with
;; `global-page-break-lines-mode'.
;; Issues and limitations:
;; If `page-break-lines-char' is displayed at a different width to
;; regular characters, the rule may be either too short or too long:
;; rules may then wrap if `truncate-lines' is nil. On some systems,
;; Emacs may erroneously choose a different font for the page break
;; symbol, which choice can be overridden using code such as:
;; (set-fontset-font "fontset-default"
;; (cons page-break-lines-char page-break-lines-char)
;; (face-attribute 'default :family))
;; Use `describe-char' on a page break char to determine whether this
;; is the case.
;; Additionally, the use of `text-scale-increase' or
;; `text-scale-decrease' will cause the rule width to be incorrect,
;; because the reported window width (in characters) will continue to
;; be the width in the frame's default font, not the scaled font used to
;; display the rule.
;; Adapted from code
