one problem with MS word is, some documents have line breaks per 80 column, it's pain to merge lines one by one, global replace of all line break will erase paragraphs, any idea?

It's not a problem with Word at all. It may be a problem with the text file's poor formatting. If the paragraphs have some way of being identified like say a line space then all you do is search/replace for double paragraph ends and replace with something else not in the text. Then fix the line ends and finally replace the orogianl replace with a single line end followed by 4 spaces to denote the beginning of paragraphs.

In the Conversion Tools section of the MobileRead Wiki (there is a link to the Wiki on the top left of this page) it lists a macro by Stingo that works in MS Word. I have used it for a long time and it works wonders on files with hard returns at the end of each line. (Like the files you get from Gutenberg.)
