What can this extension do? edit

This extension adds a <nounwrap> tag that makes linefeeds within it get treated as linefeeds, while still performing all other wikitext processing. This is useful for copy/pasting large documents into a wiki page that need to be able to wordwrap or contain other wiki formatting without having to indent the entire thing or wrap it in <pre>
