    Much like the annoying CRLF sequences. Which about tells you where to solve
    it. In the ftp's text mode. Or wherever you solve the CRLF problem after
    transferring the files in some other way.

    Notice that Notepad still doesn't handle files with just LF's. Notepad
    doesn't give a damn about UNIX.
