I was able to work around this problem by deleting the carriage-returns 
inside the Forrest: Source block, then holding the [shift] key while 
pressing [return] for each one. I do have some strange behavior, still 
(extra breaks), but I should be able to get by this way...

However, I intend to check into the openoffice-writer2forrest.xsl file 
and see if I can come up with a 'real' fix.

Here's a section of the document I created:

NOTE: Between 'Bill exists in' and 'system' there is a 'soft' return 
([shift]+[return]) and 8-10 spaces. I need the soft-returns, because 
without them, the page gets too wide.

I noticed that spaces are colored differently depending on whether the 
[option] key (at least for Mac OS X--I don't know about other OSes) is 
down.

In the end, I discovered:
- 'soft' returns require [option]+[return]
- 'hard' spaces (those which are never ignored) require [option]+[space]
- complete a thought in one line without 'softwarpping' (if text 
overflows to the next line I have problems--for an example of what I'm 
referring to, in your e-mail client, this line is probably filling up 
two or three lines, 'soft-wrapping' a couple of times)

In the end, I am able to achieve the output I'm looking for. Keeping in 
mind the above discoveries, the Forrest documentation output for 
OpenOffice.org Writer files is what I was hoping for.
