    When I am editing my profile and adding text, now the line spacing is double (when I hit enter). If I keep typing, it will wrap and single space ok. How do I get it to single space when I enter. You can see the double spacing on the first 8 lines of my page that I want to be single spaced.

    In most word processing, [ENTER] gives you a paragraph break (with associated spacing between paragraphs). If you want a line break (you want the lines of the paragraph to stay together), use [SHIFT+ENTER]. In this forum, here's how I'd represent the difference, using a bulleted/numbered list:
    1. Some text that is on the first line and is the first item in the list.
    2. Some text that is on the second line and the second item in the list.
      Some text that is on the third line and part of the second item in the list.
    Notice that the 2nd and 3rd lines are part of the same item number... I used [SHIFT+ENTER] between them. Otherwise, it'll only create a new line when the viewer's browser gets to the end of a line:
    1. Some text that is on the first line and is the first item in the list.
    2. Some text that is on the second and third lines and part of the second item in the list. It creates a new line only when the viewer's browser gets to the end of the line. Otherwise, not.
    To force a line break, you don't need to use the list function (it just made my example easy to see). :)

    Thanks Bryan. The [Shift+Enter] did it.

    The shift-enter is just what I have been looking for. I hate the defaults in Wordpad. Thanks for the hint.
