Thank you for that tidbit! Now I won't scratch my head wondering where the empty line came from (in some future book)
Though <div height="0em"></div> specially says 'no blank line'.


In Word I am pretty helpless, and to tell the truth have never much needed it. I get my material mostly from mobiunpack, so I can confess having seen some number of various coding. Now at last I've reached a bit farther than absolute beginner level and am interested in reducing filesize and removing needless stuff.
Colors I like and want will not get rid of.


I understand that <a href..> or <a filepos...> are important anchors, but what meaning can <a></a> have?

Now I'm little more confident to chop into those html-s...
