Re: Multiplication or separate expressions when evaluating lines in a cell?

The format of the text I sent to mathgroup appeared different when it
was sent back to me by the mathgroup listserv.  The text in the cell I
was "fighting with" did NOT look like: 

> (* 1st word *)  N[(2*Pi/1*^-6)*1.40] (* 2nd word *)
> N[(2*Pi/1*^-6)*1.45] (* 3rd word *)  N[(2*Pi/1*^-6)*1.50]

In the actual notebook cell, the entries were on three separate lines:

(* 1st comment *)  N[(2*Pi/1*^-6)*1.40]

(* 2nd comment *)  N[(2*Pi/1*^-6)*1.45] 

(* 3rd comment *)  N[(2*Pi/1*^-6)*1.50]

(I placed extra linespaces between the entries above to help ensure that
the message would appear correct when this was emailed back to all of
us.)

I still don't know why the evaluation was so unusual.  To address my
dissatisfaction with pagebreaks and formatting, I have downloaded
Publicon and will learn to use that.
