I'd say that not operating system but printer matters :). When printing CR is Carriage Return and LF - Line Feed, not just markers for end of line. CR without LF is useful to print a line or word two times so it appears bold or to print one character over another so o+' becomes ˇ. ytm -- http://bossstation.dnsalias.org/ Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
