The Poetry Aloud website has grown in complexity and some people have asked for a guide. Here it is, but if it seems incomplete note that this document will develop over time.

I would like to understand some puzzling behaviour I have come across three times now.
A couple of days ago someone called me and asked for some advice to do with computing. My answer involved giving them the web address for OpenOffice, which I highly recommend instead of paying money for a commercial offering. OpenOffice is free and does everything you need it to do in much the same way as a common one.
There is a small difference between typing poetry into a website as opposed to typing prose.
The difference is line endings. With prose, a line ending indicates the end of a paragraph. On this site, as others, this causes a gap to be inserted between the paragraphs.
When entering poetry, this is not always what we want.
We would like the lines of a stanza to be next to each other.
As these four lines are.
So how do you make this happen?
