Thanks, Mark!

I knew I remembered seeing something like that in Word; that's what
prompted me to ask if there were some standard.

I got some excellent suggestions from other posts, but this is exactly the
solution I needed for my situation.

I'm working with a really cool laptop word processor called an AlphaSmart,
and this will make it a cinch to upload my text files from it into Word on
my desktop machine.

Thanks *very* much!
