Hello all. Here's what I posted (via Michelle) yesterday:

OK, here's an interesting one. I've done some looking in the archives
and find nothing that's exactly what I want. I'm wondering if anyone has
heard about using the "shift + enter" option to reduce the number of
paragraph marks appearing in a document. I can find all kinds of
information telling me that I shouldn't have paragraph marks with no
attached text, but nothing that tells me what happens if I do have them.
So what does happen? I know that corruption is often stored in paragraph
marks, but everything I find talks about that occuring in the final
paragraph mark of a document. Can anyone shed some light on this? I get
the digest version, so if I don't respond immediately, please accept my

What I'm trying to do is to get some information on why it might benefit
me to remove so-called "blank" paragraph marks from my document. I have
one co-worker that says her research indicates it reduces corruption. I
have another co-worker that says our use of styles (something we ARE NOT
going to give up) is what causes the corruption. All my research
indicates that, yes, paragraph marks do tend to hold the corrupt
information. However, everything I read says that it is usually the
final paragraph mark that causes the problem. But I also read that you
should not have blank paragraphs. Can anyone tell me why I shouldn't
have blank paragraphs or shed ANY light on the other issue?
