My text is in a text frame. I tried the story editor but it does not have a 
search and replace function. There is no CR representation in the file. Same 
as if you typed in the text by hand and hit CR. There is no character 
representing the CR in the text (I can't see any). But I know it's there 
because I just entered it (return key).
