+1 on alt-enter from me but to the side does anybody else remember when 
Compac started shipping PCs with a split space bar half of which 
defaulted to backspace - all touch typists found every other word 
missing the last letter and merged into the next word plus the only 
official way to change it to both halves being space was after every 
reboot to press shift control left-space 3 times or to open up the 
keyboard and get busy with the track cutter and soldering iron. At least 
Wing lets you change the behaviour back to what you like!
