You'll stand a better chance of getting your line ends right by using
with the line end being represented by whatever it is on the system where
the text file containing these two lines resides. (This would be CR+LF on
Windowses, LF on Unices and CR on Mac OSs.)

Explicitly requesting CR or LF or CR+LF means that the result will not
necessarily have the intended line structure on one system or the other,
i.e., wherever you run the XSLT.
