Remove double spaces from pasted code samples in blog

If you highlight a recent code sample from my blog and paste it into VFP, you might see the code double spaced. This can be annoying, especially if there are line continuation characters:

            x= "This is a " +;

            "continued line"

I’ve found that to avoid this, I can paste into a new Outlook message (which I have configured to use MSWord as my email editor), then click on (or alt-shift-F10) the little smart tag icon to alter the paste format to “Match Destination Formatting”, then copy/paste into VFP, the extra lines are removed.

The host blogging software changed a few months ago, so the HTML for older posts may behave differently with regard to double-spacing.
