Years ago, I was making PPD (PostScript Printer Description) files for 
Mac and PC. The spec. stated that the line endings could be CR, LF or CR+LF.

All went well until one day someone reported that they wouldn't install 
on a Mac, which they had done previously.

It turned out that the Mac had a newer version of MacOS, which now 
insisted that the line endings be CR only...
