My ANS-308 formatting was perfect, as usual. I use Outlook 2003. There is a setting in Outlook which can cause something similar to what you are reporting. It allows you to squeeze out extra blank lines. I am not certain how it defines them, but I once accidently checked that box, and started to get problems with both ANS and the Keps, among others. As you report, it was somewhat inconsistent. I never found the exact problem, once I found that changing that parameter fixed the problem. Perhaps there may be something in Eudora which is similar, possibly hidden in the advanced settings?
