Thanks for the very useful URL. There was a slight misunderstanding of my problem, since I already knew how to play with the registry to enable the status bar. What I wanted was to un-grey the View/Status Bar item on the Notepad menu bar. I now know that enabling Word Wrap automatically disables and greys-out the aforesaid menu item.
Anyway, thanks again.
