I tried running Notepad with a "-h" or "/h" option to see if it listed any
help ... it just told me the file didn't exist.  There's nothing in the
online help about command-line switches, either.

If it took command-line switches I think it should at least give a
command-line switch error.  Things don't look promising here.

Also the word-wrap option is not preserved between different runs of Notepad,
worse luck.
