Interesting problem:  An email text is received which you need to format for
The email uses a carriage return at the end of each line, and a double
carriage return
for paragraph spacing.  What I'd like to do is remove the cr's at the end of
each line, so
the text can be justified, and turn the double cr's into paragraph controls,
or just leave
as double cr's.  Obviously all this can be done a line at a time by hand,
but it's a pain.
Is there any way someone can suggest to automate this?

Search and replace #1 - search for double carriage return and replace
with manual page break

Search and replace #2 - search for carriage return and replace with space

Search and replace #3 - search for manual page break and replace with
(double) carriage return
