Moreover, we should also consider CJK characters:
The width of CJK characters is twice as wide as Latin characters,
so that the width of "漢" or "あ" or "가" (one CJK character) is
the same as "AA" (two Latin characters).

Under current implementation of hard wrap, wrapping at
"current window size" is useless for CJK documents, because
TeXworks treats all characters as having the same width as Latin characters.
