Hi, Sue!

It sounds possible that someone or something substituted a line break with a 
tab.  I would be glad to look at a page and test for you to see if you can then 
do a global replace of tabs with spaces.  Or you could try that and revert if 
it does not work.

Which scan engine are you using?

Good luck!
