Gerald, That's good to know, i.e., about the line break. But the paragraph symbol at the end of the line does the same thing in Word, and doesn't make paragraphs, it's is just a line break--but apparently not when it's changed by bookshare. Can we assume that that symbol doesn't affect reading by members, that it's safe to just leave them? Is there a way Jamie and I can test to be sure?
