Thanks, Glenn!

Alas, I don't remember how to get this to work correctly.  I'm using a Mac and made a file using TextEdit, which saves as RTF.  I made sure that there was a <return> at the end of the last line, and I changed the .rtf suffix to .puz, but AcrossLite still thinks it's a corrupted file.  Can anyone remind me what I have to do to get it to work?

Thanks!
David

I use a Mac.  I drag-select Glenn's text, just up to the end of the last line, copy and paste into a new TextEdit document.  I save it as a txt file.  AcrossLite opens the txt file with no problems.

These posts mainly exist when the regular service on the site doesn't pick up and post the PUZ files for download.  If those don't exist at the usual time they should be available, I post these.  Refer to the site's listing for more than what you see here.
