Subject: RE: Clean text for the blind
LE... It's because Word and HTML are two different animals. It's kinda hard to explain....

The line breaks and everything else that vanishes from your word docs are in one format... Mudcat doesn't recognize the format, and therefore doesn't worry about printing it. Text is pretty much universal in computers, so that gets through.

The line breaks, italics, bold typing and all the other non-plain text effects you see around here are a result of HTML coding that the poster inserts while entering the post. There's a great thread on all the fun stuff you can do with HTML floating around right now, but I'm too lazy at the moment to drag it up and link it.

Hope that helps...
