The problem comes fron Ender. The text a get with the Ender's function
GetContentsAsText() contains space (0x20) instance of return.

Akk, does this require your formatted text output?

Yes, it should be using the formatted plaintext output.

I'm in the process of redesigning the output routines to take a mime type and a
flags argument, instead of the huge proliferation of output routines we were
seeing (I had added four new ones and then decided enough was enough), which
will make it easier for clients like mail compose to specify the type and format
they want.  This will be checked in shortly after the tree reopens, post M8.  If
you need this for M8, let me and chofmann know, and we can make the argument for
checking the change in early, or in temporarily making the EditorShell routines
force formatted output instead of unformatted.

Checked in; you should now be getting formatted output.  Let me know if there
are still problems with the formatting.
