I think Wordpad handles this correctly.

    It does, but I can't rely on everyone knowing that. Even if only one person attempts to open in Notepad and sees a bunch of squares and mashed together text, that's one too many in this case.


      the "\r\n" should work for you.. it does for me (TM). As for the notepad/wordpad... save it in the extension of ".wri" which is assocated with wordpad by default.

      hope this helps
