Hey, you know, when someone takes their time to try to post something that might be of interest (It's hard to tell as it's formated.) why dump on them with smart remarks. Help them learn how to do it. I'd give Frank the magic instructions but I don't know how to reformat it either. If you had helped him you would have helped me and others.
-- Todd Detzel (email@example.com), April 07, 2000.
frank, don't feel too bad. I bet Supreme Court Justices don't know HTML either. 8^)
The two commands I like to use to separate text into more digestible chunks are <p> ("paragraph" - sort of like two "newlines") and <br> ("break" - sort of like one "newline"). If the text contains superfluous "<s", I would use an editor to delete them.
Incidentally, since < and > are special characters in HTML, I had to do some fiddling to get them to appear in this answer. I would suggest that folks new to HTML not try this.
Hope this helps. Try not to get discouraged.
