Mary Sue,

Just a tidbit on that issue. Once again we are dealing with the nasty issue
of Mac/PC conversion. I have noticed the same problem when dealing with
text. Turns out that the two operating systems use different line
formatting. When you hit enter once in a Mac, it makes a new line, but PCs
read it as two enters. I am not sure if the newer versions of Macs have
solved this problem. It gets frustrating when they can't even standardize
something as simple as plain text.
