Justifying paragraphs.

I receive many MSWord documents which I then convert to plain text or LaTeX etc. Typically all the characters in a paragraph are crowded onto one line. This makes editing a bore.

I can use: gqap
to change an individual paragraph to a series of lines of standard length. But I haven't found a global way to do it to all paragraphs. There is/are one or more blank lines between paragraphs.

Is there a colon command string that will accomplish this task?

Why not just load the files in OpenOffice or StarOffice or Abiword and convert them to text before hand? Or even save them from MSword in plain text or rtf format?
