Thanks for the link. I had read those threads, but no answer there.
An example of my problem is the words (with the punctuation):
I don't want to hyphenate them. I don't want to manually add a \newline
before them. I just want the latex magic to automatically move it to the
next line and justify the line as needed.
This also happens in regular Standard text too, where I have "(TTL)",
"(MSS)", MIB-like variables like net.inet.ip.porthilast and
net.inet.ip.portrange.hifirst, filenames (with backslashes) like
/etc/authpf/authpf.allow, and words that start with a dollar sign (like
$foo). These are all same font.
I have many, many lines like this. And adding a \newline or forcing
hyphenation causes maintenance problems (as you mention) since I am
updating content and later may change paper size.
