[jdom-interest] end-of-line character

All XML-aware applications that use an XML processor will
only ever see '\n', correct?  In this case, it does not seem
to matter how the document is output.  In this event, I guess
the question should be whether it is more important to output
the document in a standard way or output it in a way that would
be useful for viewing by standard text editors/viewers on the
system that the document is created on.

Well, why is that "correct"?  Remember, we had this debate after
Elliotte's change and standardizing on \r\n was fairly well agreed upon
for numerous reasons.
