I resemble that remark! Seriously, every significant modern Mac 
editor I'm aware of handles \r\n automatically. I don't think \n or 
\r\n files have been a real problem on the Mac for the last decade or 
so. The only one that's a problem is SimpleText which noone uses for 
real work. Certainly UltraEdit has a lot more trouble with my Mac 
files than BBEdit has with my PC files.
