Editing Style / Many Line Breaks[edit]

it's an editing style that is left over from the old days of using TROFF which I've carried over to HTML because HTML treats line breaks in the same way. Essentially, one puts in one line per phrase for ease of editing. It works for me :-) but now I'm feeling very old indeed. --Roszlishan 01:59, 14 December 2007 (MST)

Wow... I see what you mean... All you need to do is remove the line breaks (see the diff on this edit) and everything should be easier to read. --Green Dragon 20:39, 15 December 2007 (MST)
There was editing, in those long-ago days before WYSIWYG editors, when one created text files with complex embedded macros to cause the typesetter to format one's documents, and it was closer to programming. Preferred TROFF macro packages were religious matters akin to brace style of ten years ago or .NET vs. Java today. I wrote a great deal of stuff all beautifully formatted in TROFF, and tried to hew to the editing recommendations of short lines based on phrases, since that made editing (or more accurately, programming the text composition) simpler.
