Well, technically, TMG did not enter a hidden formatting code -- you
did. <g> A carriage return as a result of hitting [Enter] is not a
formatting code any more than is any letter a formatting code. Also
it was not hidden. In your reply (partially quoted above), there
were numerous carriage returns. Were they supposed to be hidden? I
wasn't sure. <g>
