Thanks, but I've very recently become acquainted with tidy and have begun
using it on my main index.php--thought.org's "www" page.   This page
was an almost unreadable rat's net of by-hand coded html.   (as i move
toward another mark-up standard.)    using your script, or mine,  based on
Roland smith's, will be a great help.     

I knew there were ways of embedding \n's in scripts and signatures, &c,
but until your posting, i had forgoooten exactly how.   thank you for
the refresher!    

I'll check the FBSD Docs for `Separating Tags'; that level of obscurity is
beyond amazing, :-)
