It's a sporadic consequence when 
    Mail.Wrap 70 ^ 
is applied to some lines of Text separated by an empty line.  

Wrap is described here, including a link to the source. 
Near the end of Oberon.Mail, following CutLines.

The observation is that in rare cases an empty line (separation of 
paragraphs) appears to be removed. Apparent damage can be worse in 
more rare cases. Only in a Document viewer; not in a plain Text 
viewer. Scrolling out of view and back in view makes the empty line 
visible again. Storing the viewer to a file and opening again also 
restores the correct view.  That's why I hypothesize that an update is 
needed in my code. 

When another case turns up I might find a way to transmit it so that 
you see directly.

Thanks again,                          ... Lyall E.
