Jane Austen's peculiarity

Call my code clunky, clumsy and slow, and that won't really fuss me:
BUT what does fuss me is why this produces NO results when it analyses a
text imported from an RTF file, BUT does work when the text
is either manually edited or imported from a text file.
put empty into fld "COOKED"
put 1 into KTEKST
put 1 into KCOOK
repeat until line KTEKST of fld "TEKST" contains "finalSolution666"
put line KTEKST of fld "TEKST" into fld "LYNE"
put 1 into KWERBS
repeat until line KWERBS of fld "WERBS" contains "finalSolution666"
put "was " & line KWERBS of fld "WERBS" into fld "FRAZE"
if fld "LYNE" contains fld "FRAZE" then
put fld "LYNE" into line KCOOK of fld "COOKED"
add 1 to KCOOK
add 1 to KWERBS
add 1 to KTEKST
This is a big Pain-in-the-bum as texts imported from Text files do NOT
generally come into LC textFields with lineBreaks.
