This issue came up on the HTML Working group list.

The current practice[1] is that the LF character is what matters.

The spec will say that CRLF is the correct way to break a line,
but it will encourage browser implementors to accept LF alone
as a linebreak, and caution authors and editor implementors
that CR alone will _not_ work. (right, Mike?)
