Maybe. The list may be expecting different line endings than AOL provides. What we usually see 
when people paste here from the SE is a bunch of markup symbols, but the carriage returns 
generally come through okay.

Here's a copy/paste test from my LC editor, let's see what happens:

on mouseUp
  hide me
end mouseUp
