No.  Check your mail reader fonts with this; "l1l1l1l1l1l1l1".

You wrote "-l" (letter L lowercase), but Frank wrote "-1" (digit
one).  The minus one syntax forces the listing to be one per line.

On the other hand, ls(1) normally assumes one per line output when it is
sent to a file or pipe, so the minus one syntax is not needed, but not
