    I don't think there is much you can do about it. Although Excel has indenting, word wrap, etc., its text processing capabilities are far from perfect. In this case, the last line should be wrapped, but Excel fails to do so. If you remove point #16, you'll see that #15 doesn't wrap correctly. Display will be problematic anyway if the cell contains more than 1,204 characters.
    Excel just wasn't designed for this. If you really need this kind of thing, use a text box, or Microsoft Word.
