OK, how about an alternative then, assuming BlueChip's code is not
workable?

The %pb and %pm already "scale" to fit the current WPS font size, so
if one of these were placed on a "truncated" final line, couldn't it
be "scaled" to fit the final line size, instead of the current WPS
font size. No text I know, but at least this would take advantage of
the wasted screen area.
