XML 1.0 treats CR, LF, and <CR, LF> as line terminators and reports
them as LF.
XML 1.1 will treat CR, LF, NEL, <CR, LF>, <CR, NEL>, and LS as line
terminators and report them all as LF. PS is left alone, because of
the bare possibility that it is being used as quasi-markup.
I can't imagine why EOF should be called a line terminator, except
in the sense that a "read a line" operation should obviously not attempt
to read past EOF. Calling it a line terminator means that every
document is forced into the mold of being an integral number of lines
long, regardless of the facts.
> Don't know about <LF, CR>. I think that should be two line ends.
I agree. I don't know any system that uses this sequence.
