RE: [xsl] Cannot output CRLF

The XML parser is required to normalize CRLF to LF on input; the XSLT
processor only sees LF. The serializer is allowed to output a newline using
any representation that the parser will normalize back to LF, but the
chances are that it will simply use LF. If the document is going to be read
by a conformant XML parser, it doesn't make any difference. It's only when
you want to read it using an inflexible text editor or similar that you get
problems. The answer is to postprocess.
