It seemed to have been a bug where some linebreaks weren't
removed from a post many years ago... I can't recall the

of difference . . .

Found them; posts 9087 and 9088. Looking at them again
though makes me think they're merely "echoes" of 9086
and should really be deleted, but would that cause too
Think I'm going to have to re-jig my stats spreadsheet.
