[Sca-cooks] OT, OP: Problems pasting into messages under Mac OS 10.6

I haven't found the answer to my problem in a quick search but I  
suspect that others here may have experienced this. I know there are  
folks here using the Mac OS.

A few days ago I finally updated to Snow Leopard from Leopard. OS 10.5  
to OS 10.6.  Now when I try to paste something from a Word document,  
such as the master filelist for the Florilegium or a message from the  
Florilegium into a mail message, I get extra blank lines between each  
of the printed lines.

I didn't have this problem under previous versions of the OS. I can't  
find any setting in the preferences to Mail which will change this. It  
sorta looks like it is trying to "help" make a message more readable  
on a windows system, but since that is already being taken care of,  
I'm getting two CR or CR/LF sequences instead of one.

Removing all these blank lines by hand when I've pasted in something  
is getting to be a pain. Perhaps someone (or something) is trying to  
tell me I post too much. I don't know.

Thanks for any help you can give.
