Yes, it works this way too.

And it looks nicer than sending messages with no line-breaks at all
within each paragraph as John Hawkinson suggests. Because if I make my
xterm very wide, f=f messages don't get too wide (flowing stops at about
70 columns).

While in John's messages, each paragraph becomes a very long line which
is difficult to read.
