Then it's no surprise that Windows text editors follow the "theoretical"
and probably broken approach, while the Unix ones do things the way
they've always been done.
Thanks for weighing in on this one, Bram.
Well, I never heard of "line separator" until people started trying to
explain the broken behavior, and I've been around computers for a long
time. I think the "theoretical" and "practical" are the same in this
case, and the "broken" is just that! :-P
