This question has nothing to do with XSLT and is therefore off-topic. It's a
question about CSV. You won't find a standard for CSV files - you just have to
do what works for your receiving application.

line feed or carriage return?  Reason I am asking is because when I open my
CSV file in NotePad or WordPad the data wraps.  But with Notes++ or Excel the
data does not wrap.  Currently using a line feed at end of my data.  Assuming
it should be a carriage return.  Guessing that the data is wrapping when I
open the CSV file because it does not recognize the carriage return or line
feed but Notes++ does recognize these characters.
