      Hello,

      When a string is concealed, characters in the string along each line are
      replaced by nothing; but any <CR>s in the string remain as <CR>s. Why is
      the design this way? If it is possible to make conceal remove any <CR>s in
      the string being concealed, please consider offering this feature.

      Thanks,

      --Suresh

        Probably because that's what folding is designed for. Although folding
        cannot completely remove the folded lines, it will bring it down to a
        single line.
