inquit Bev:

I don't mind nonindented papers as long as there's doublespacing between
paragraphs; otherwise they drive me crazy (and I get this a lot from
students).  I encourage indenting mainly because of this problem.


And I get a lot of grief when copying text electronically between
applications. F'rex, I see a nicely formatted web page or MS Word document,
with the paragraphs separated by blank lines, and I copy it and paste it
into a plaintext document (the only universal format, or the closest thing
there is to one)... and those blank lines disappear, because they're part of
the formatting, not the text. Grrr.
