These files will be looked at by some non-technical people. I am sure
these people will just click on the icons, and the file will come up
in notepad.

But, you are correct, I know that wordpad, and notepad++, and many
other apps will read the UNIX formated files just fine. IMO: notepad
is total junk, but it's still the default text editor on windows.
