That's because you assume the linefeeds to be \r only. If you really
want to strip endings on strings ending with "No.", then do this
foo = line.rstrip()
line = foo
Never assume line breaks to be of any type, because there are four of
them: \n, \r, \n\r, \r\n. It would be a waste of code to check for all
four, kind of reimplementing the wheel again.
