<plug>If you use Windows, there's a really nice text editor (available for
Linux also), that's called EditPad Lite...  It's free.  It does all sorts of
nice stuff, including having a function for saving in DOS or Unix format.
:)  Check it out:  http://editpadlite.com/editpadlite.html.  If you like it,
there's a pro version with a few more features that's really nice too.  :)
However, the free one will do a ton of stuff and make your life easier.
