emacs line formatting help


I want to write a text file.I want to do that in emacs.I want emacs to format it(while typing itself) such that no line contains more than 88 characters and no words broken.( I want a line break at such points,so that even when I use with other editors,it looks the same)..
How can I do that?Googling didnt help

TIA
