Interesting problem: An email text is received which you need to format
for publication.
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?


File type: Text Encoded
Choose encoding and line feed.

What I had done previously was to highlight the email text and paste it.
Now instead I tried to follow your instructions.

I found the file-type Text Encoded.
I couldn't find "encoding" or "line feed" either as one or two lines.

I assume for this purpose, I should save the email to a file, which I did.
I chose file type "text encodied" and searched out the file (.eml) which
looked like raw html when I imported it.  I deleted all the html stuff on
top, and was left with a file that could not be justified or anything, and
had all the apostrophes and quotation marks replaced by some letter
and symbol crap.

Obviously, I'm not doing what you suggest, but I guess I just don't
