      The sample I used had such short lines, word-wrap never occured to
      me :)

      temp.otl sounds like something I should have deleted at the end of
      the clip. It's coming back to me now. I saved the line numbers in an
      outline, sorted the original file to remove duplicates, then
      retrieved the line numbers from the outline so I could re-sort back
      to the order it had prior to duplicates-removing sort. I doubt I used
      any StrSize type tests.
