And what do you do if you are not using the "slrn" newsreaders.
I have an "Enter" key on my keyboard and I use it! It doesn't seem to
me to be "rocket science" to use an "Enter" key, or a "Return" key
somewhere between 1 and 120 characters. Most PCs, terminals or printers
should be able to render it.
Most of the "horrible examples" seem to be using MicroSoft malware.
In one case I noticed fairly recently, the offender seemed to have
cut and pasted from MicroSoft Word or a similar product. Presumably,
some MicroSoft product will render it so you can read it. The problem
there is that a lot of people are not using Microsoft products for all
tasks. MicroSoft is EXPENSIVE. There are alternatives that some of us
use to avoid bankruptcy!
