We continue to worry about the mega-long URLs that result when we try to point people at Apple's FTP sites, because the return characters they contain tend to cause problems when people copy and paste them into other programs. As a result, we're going to try enclosing URLs that span more than a single line in <angle brackets>, just as we do with email addresses, machine names, newsgroup names in running text. This won't make the return characters go away, but will alert you to their existence.
