URL for GutenText please

I've downloaded a text file from the internet which I think would make a very good ebook. But the text file has a pilcrow character (¶, ¶) at the end of each line rather than at the end of each paragraph. I need to remove them before I can start preparing an HTML file. I can't get Textify to do this, and it is taking forever to remove them by hand.

I understand that GutenText can do what I want, but when I do a google almost all the URLs found are in German, which I don't speak. I have searched MoblileRead, but the posts I have found which mention GutenText do not have a link to it.

So can some kind soul send me the URL please?

Alternatively, is there another program that anyone can recommend which will do this task?

Regards, Alex

Thanks, Cabe. I've downloaded Notepad2 and have looked at the file with it. I have worked out how to see line endings, which show as LF (white on black), and I've explored the other menu options. But I can't work out how to remove the unwanted LFs while retaining the LFs at the ends of paragraphs.

What procedure should I use?

Regards, Alex
