HTML chars have strange chars that show up as little square boxes, but are something else?

The text below was cut 'n past from an HTML file.
When I pasted it into a text field of an Access 97
table, it looked different than it does below.

Below, you can see that the first 3 lines have
hard returns at the end of each line (carriage
return and line feed). But what I see pasted
into an A97 table field is a single string with
little square boxes at the ends of these lines.
I see VIN:, a box, then 12 spaces, then </strong>,
another box, 12 more spaces... and so on.

I would like to determine the ASCII value of
these little boxes. If I paste them in to the
immediate window, they do not appear as
little boxes, but as hard returns. Anybody
know what they are?

Those little boxes are the "hard returns". (Actually, a CR and a LF).

Change the field to a Memo Field to "see" them work.
