Web browsers seem to do this. However, when testing "MS Web Folders" and
"Cadaver" I have found they transmit the files with the actual
line termination encoding of the file.

This is not a problem when using something like dreamweaver, front page,
Netscape Composer, since they "render" the HTML in a layout and do not
care about line termination.

I have not verified this is the case with Goliath or the one built-into
Mac OS X with the iDisk.
