I just got one blank line, which did seem a bit skimpy for any spoiler "space".  Are spoiler characters really a standard for email as much as they are for Usenet?  If so, Eudora is "broken", I guess.  :(

Formfeed is a standard ASCII character that means advance to the next
page.  If the program doesn't, that sounds pretty broken to me.
