| to HTML.
| See, Notepad has the line-break formatting bug. If you write a text file on
| anything but Windows and send it to a Microsoft user and they open it in
| Notepad, all your paragraph line breaks (where you hit the 'return/enter'

| viewing with word-wrap turned off, a single loooooong line of text where you
| have to keep scrolling sideways.
| And it's been this way for 23 years!!! They still haven't fixed it, and we've
| spent an accumulated year off of all of our lives by now shuffling documents
| around because of one stupid program.

(Windows) line breaks. I was using GNU/Linux.
