If the strings are meant to be copied and pasted by readers, include a note about the arbitrary splitting, either ahead of the table or at the end.

I don't have the latest, greatest, up-to-date-est rev of Flare, but unless there's been a change since the one I have, text in table cells won't wrap if there are no spaces, and when auto-sizing column widths to cell contents collides with table width limits, the limits lose. So yes, I think the solution here may be to introduce breaks in long test strings.
