Jack,

I don't know of a style per-se that would typically cause paragraphs to be
separated by a blank line in a braille document.  I'd be able to spot the
culprit in a jiffy with a sample file.  Bear in mind that, if there is a
style involved, it may well not be a style that we've defined.  DBT does
give you rope with which to hang yourself when you define your own styles.
(Or it could be one of our styles that's not coming to mind now.)

What's more, it might not be a style issue at all.  The behavior of the [p]
code, regardless of whether [p] is entered directly into the document or is
embedded in a style definition, is controlled by parameters in a Format
Control Table (.fct file).  For your work, I'd guess that amerpr.fct is used
when your document is in print and amerpb.fct is used when it is in braille.
You'll be able to tell for certain by finding the entry in weebee.wbd that
corresponds to the language you've chosen.  Editing of either weebee.wbd or
an .fct file can cause the formatting at paragraph breaks to change.

Weebee.wbd and all .fct files are editable text files.  We just don't
recommend editing them.

- Peter

Very naive question.  In a dxb or brf file, paragraphs are often separated
by two carriage returns, with an intervening space. What style is this, and
how can I turn it off, so there is only one carriage return with the
convensional two spaces, to denote a new paragraph. In many instances, I
would justas soon have the translator produce a document with no blank
lines.  I often edit a file on a braille lite m40 and add blank lines, where
needed.

Thanks

Jack
