Maybe so.    There is the problem with the footnotes - they're
pretty awful as single letters set apart only by spaces.
The other thing, though, is I do find that it seems to have
hardcoded returns in the text... such that if you open up
the commentary window wider, sometimes you get the
paragraphs to line up reasonably so that there are none
of what appear to be double and triple spaces between

Now if only I can find that file with the keys in it. :(
