Here is an example that shows the line breaks created by -translate-
and -log2html-.

#delimit ;
sysuse auto;
set linesize 120;
log using linetest.smcl;
tabstat price mpg rep78 headroom trunk weight length turn
displacement gear_ratio foreign;
log close;
translate linetest.smcl linetest.log, translator(smcl2log);
log2html linetest.smcl;

In the Stata Results window and in linetest.smcl the -tabstat- output
appears as one table that is 120 characters wide. In linetest.log and
linetest.html the lines are broken after 79 characters. The break
appears at the variable "length". "lengt" appears one one line, "h"
on the next. The mean value of length (187.9324) is also broken,
187.932 appears on one line, 4 on the next.
