Autumn Leaves Shawl

"The Autumn Leaves Shawl features a simple stockinette body knit sideways in a shallow triangle shape. The leafy border is knitted on at the same time. Made in a loose gauge, Autumn Leaves is an airy layering piece, just enough for when there’s a chill in the air. This design works great with that special skein of fingering weight yarn. The Autumn Leaves Shawl can, however, be made in any size, using any weight of yarn. Just knit until you have reached half of your yarn or half the size you want the shawl or shawlette to be. Since the body is in plain stockinette this pattern is also very suited to use with hand dyed yarns. Instructions for the lace border are both written and charted. Difficulty This pattern features lace knitted on both right and wrong side rows. Stitches used include knit, purl, k2tog, p2tog, kfb, M1, skp, yo and sl2-k1-p2sso. This pattern is suitable for the intermediate or lace knitter."

Is it just my browser (Firefox) or does this come across in one big block for everyone? That's a little daunting! I can copy and seperate it to make it easier to read, but that's kind of a pain. I would like to try this later this year but please, format it to be more readable?
