Like Andrew, I couldn't duplicate your problem. I wondered if it had
something to do with tabs in your text to create your "10 column
structure", but tabs made no difference. A block, passed to a
function, should still be the same block - no changes to it should
occur. So, what do you mean by a 10 column structure?
