I am interested in using GridBoxes to generate some output  that will
wrap in the notebook window. Here is a simple example using numbers

CellPrint[Cell[BoxData[GridBox[Table[Random[], {2}, {10}]]],

The output is a "table" consisting of two rows and 10 columns.
Obviously you can scroll to see all the entries, but I would like the
output to wrap in the browser window because in my application(see
below) the number of columns will be  large(>1000).  Is there some
option I can specify for GridBoxes, Cell?

In my application the actual  grid structure I want to generate is a
DNA sequence of paired bases that can be graphically represented as

  Cell[RowBox[{GridBox[{Characters["atcgt"], Table["|", {5}], 
            Characters["tagca"]}, GridBaseline -> Bottom]}],

Any thoughts how this can be done?
