Token wrapping and lexical states

If WordWrapping is set to 'Token' and you have a long string or a long comment, then the wrapping reverts to character wrapping. I assume this is because in the language definition, the string or comment is considered a single token.

Would it be possible to forcibly wrap at literal spaces if you were in a state other than the default state (typically comments and strings) and if the wrapping type was set to token?

You could always adjust your language definition so that individual words within a comment/string are seen as separate tokens (instead of one token). I think the XMLCommentState child state in the C# sample shows an example of this.
