Can you attach a sample of the log file (with just the first line or two), it might be something related to the text encoding...

I can't reproduce it with a copy/paste of what you posted... Can you attach the actual log file (as a post attachment, not as inline text)?

There may be a line delimiter issue, but can you be more explicit than: "after i do all this i lose the formatting and end up with everything in one large paragraph "

Define all this (post code and a sample of your typical input text). Place input in a zip file so it doesn't get reformatted by the forum posting software.
