Very very poorly.

You may not be on Windows so my suggestion may not help.

ON W7 and some earlier MSFT OSs if you open a file in Wordpad (NOT Notepad) you will see most files look good regardless of the line endings.

I just add one space at the end and delete it and then save the file. That converts the line endings to <CR> <LF> for Windows Mail.

Then it would be ready to paste into a post on my OS W7.

If you are on a different OS then look at the file to see if the line endings match your e-mail program which should past correctly using your OS's normal line endings.

<CR> <LF> for Windows and MSDOS.

from memory which may be bad:

<CR> for CoCo 

<LF> for Mac.

I think LINUX is CoCo like, <CR>

If I have gotten anything wrong please correct the above and repost as I cannot change posts after they are made as I can most other places.

There are lots of conversion programs, the programming editor I used allowed saving files in all the various formats.

Everyone should have a method to look at a file's line ending so they are sure so posts are not done very badly. 

I never read any of those.
