That's strange. I also use Word 2000 and get 10 point default font on blank
lines. Whether 10 or 12, however, is not the issue since I *intend* 13
point. The point is that Abi saves *no* font size code to blank lines
meaning that it does not control the font size of blank lines in files
exported to RTF. Rather, the font size of the blank lines is controlled by
the program reading the file, rather than Abi that wrote the file.
I've attached a file that I believe clearly demonstrates the problem and
illustrates the different way Word treats font size codes.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'll do that. I had subscribed about a year ago, but unsubscribed when I
realized I didn't understand 99% of my e-mail. Thanks for the tip.
