Subject: Clean text for the blind
A blind friend of mine commented the other day that they facility which causes so much aggro here at the mudcat - (namely that lots of line breaks, line spaces, paragraph commands and other format-related bits and odds get stripped out of our messages when the system puts them up) would be very handy for people who need to use a computer braille reader. He can scan text (or read computer documents) to a braille embosser, and then read the output. But all the spaces are a waste of time and paper for him. Oh yes, he's a computer programmer.

So can anyone tell me what the engine is that takes all the spaces out of our postings, and where he can get it?
