line breaks

Using the same version of Dreamweaver 4 that I have been for the past few years, several months ago this started happening. When I go to the HTML code view, there are no line breaks where I originally put them. Even when I go to Homesite and put in the line breaks like this

<P>Text goes here.

It winds up looking like this in the code view when I go back to Dreamweaver:

<TR><TD><P>Text goes here.</TD></TR>

I've tried changing the line breaks in the preferences, but nothing works. Then I'll put in the line breaks and when I go back to it, it's jumbled again. Can you help?

Yes, I posted it in two places. Thank you for your help. It WAS the SourceFormat.txt file that was the problem.
