[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page Breaks in TXT files

But if the fine people at Mac Land were well so kind as to create standards 
for their applications that allowed them to work with our assistive 
technology perhaps we wouldn't be so dependent on Bill Gates, smile.

But seriously Kurzweil and jaws, as well as Windows Eyes, my Braille 
translators, actually all Braille translators and the list goes on.

So... perhaps in the future, but for now I am still a worshiper with my 
money at the Microsoft throne.

Ah, Shelley. But I have Hidden Characters available to
view. Admittedly I haven't downloaded andy txt files
lately, so I will, but before I didn't see any boxes,
and I'm pretty sure they weren't there. BUT -- even
though I have Microsoft Word, I do also have a Mac.
Maybe that't the difference.  That Bill Gates does
make life difficult.
