Subject: Long lines

Christine, you can set your word-processing software to
create a break at the end of each line, instead of placing
only a break at the end of each paragraph. This is an easy
answer to your problem, although you will have to stop
composing text using your web browser or email software. If
you write your text with a program such as Word, you can set
the margins to give you relatively short lines (say, 60
characters per line, which is what I am using here), then
SAVE AS... and choose an option such as "Text with Line
Breaks" or, even better, "MS-DOS Text with Line Breaks." The
option may be differently phrased in your particular version
of Word; I am using Word 2000.

Both of those options will save your text with a break at the
end of every line. "MS-DOS text" will also strip out any
smart quotes or other special characters that Word uses,
which are not properly displayed by the CryoNet system.

After you save your text, close the document, then reopen it.
Now you can select all, copy, and paste the text into your
mailing software or browser, whichever you use to send email.
