Word Wrap and Creating Line breaks for paragraphs?

I got a Kindle DX for Christmas. Great gadget. I was told to install Calibre to help manage subscriptions and to work with book importing.

I am a complete newbie to this sort of thing, so please excuse me if I'm asking the obvious.

I have a few LIT files that I want to convert to MOBI format and then to import into the Kindle. However, there are problems with how the words line wrap.

eg:

the quick brown fox jumped
over
the lazy dog so often that it
annoyed
the dog which then ate the fox.

If I turn the Kindle onto Landscape mode (auto orientation) then it displays OK. But in portrait mode it looks as shown above.

Second issue:

Some files, particularly txt (text) ones don't have any paragraphs. ie. they're all one long blob of text. Is there any trick to creating paragraphs, or do I just have to live with it?

Thanks.

Martin
