I'm getting ready to post my first gedcom to WorldConnect and have set the line length at 72. In the Notes, many lines break in the middle of a word. Is this how it will appear on WorldConnect? If so, how do I prevent it (apart from manually adding hard returns)?

Not to worry -- that's how it's supposed to work. The GEDCOM standard requires that the notes be placed into the resulting file in short pieces. Those should be properly reassembled by the program that reads the file. If you have lines which actually do contain hard breaks, the GEDCOM's contents should reflect that.
