There are no paragraphs in a text file, only carriage-return/linefeeds

There _are_ tabs, though. The trouble is there's no way to type the tab
character in the Find box. So here's what you do.

Go to a blank part of your text file. Key a tab. Press Shift+LeftCursor
to highlight the otherwise invisible tab character. Ctrl+C to copy.
Ctrl+F to open the Find dialog. Ctrl-V to paste the invisible tab
character in the box. Click `Find Next`.

You _should_ be able to do this with a pair of invisible CrLfs, too, but
the Find dialog won't accept multi-line input. Other text editors will.
For Windows, I know that HTML-Kit does.
