Only for display. :-(

Netscape for example will save a file served with ^M as a file with ^M for
line breaks. Same for ^J and ^M^J, unless you choose to, "save as" and
then "text" instead of "source". I did not test MSIE.

As for hqx, I meant to type hx (hax files for a program called "hax" that
I picked up from a buddy used in rare place for posting to bbs) instead of
hqx (binhex)..

(I read the next message. Yes, hqx is binhex.. My brain was thinking
"hx" but after working with mac so much lately, hqx is what I typed.)
