I'm having a hard time figuring out how to make carriage returns appear in my forum posts. No matter what they look like when I write them, all my posts are completely run together with no return, skipped lines, tabs, indents, etc. Do I need to insert HTML code? Is it a software/hardware issue? (I'm using a Mac and running Safari.) Thanks for your help.

I've heard several other people complain about the same problem, and IIRC, it is 100% a problem with Safari / PBS compatibility.

I believe FireFox runs on Macs, and it's free to download.

Yeah formatting doesn't work on the Google Chrome browser either, it's pretty annoying.

I have Firefox and it works well.  No problems except with my firewall and the fact that I can't cut or paste.
