Peter, Jack,

Could it be simply that the importer (Word perhaps?) has the
"Preserve skipped lines" option checked?

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
