Also, Robert, you might not be dealing with the ^l line break. You might be
dealing with paragraph breaks at the end of each line, so that the text
looks like it does in the printed book.

When I have seen that, what I have tried to do is determine if there are 2
or more paragraph breaks ^p between the paragraphs. If so, I have changed
all instances of ^p^p^p to a qqq, or if there aren't usually 3 together then
just the ^p^p to a qqq. Then I change single ^p to a space. Then I change
all the qqq back to ^p^p^p and I make sure to change all of the ^m to a
^p^m^p because changing those gives you the blank lines before and after
hard page breaks.

This will ONLY work if paragraphs are separated by at least two paragraph
breaks. If they aren't, you're better off rejecting the book than you are
trying to change only the correct ^p to a space.
