@alexbuzzbee Oh, good times: Back in the XML & SOAP spec days, I (an HP employee) had a very long argument with an IBM employee about the use of their obsolete mainframe/converted-badly-from-EBCDIC NEL U+0085
The final W3C compromise was NEL is whitespace, not a newline. So nobody's happy.
(Inspired by finding a "line endings" menu in the text editor I use on my phone which includes not just "Line Separator" but also "Paragraph Separator".)
Depending on the operating system, line endings are represented by either U+000A or U+000D followed by U+000A, except on the now discontinued old-style Mac OS, which used U+000D alone.
*whispers* We don't talk about U+2028

People bought french wine and poured it I to the sewer to protest France opposing the Iraq War on the UN security council
Ice cream truck I used to frequent didn't drive around, it had a little tent and outdoor seats in its parking lot, but drove back to warehouse to restock.
Apple pays hackers six figures to find bugs in its software. Then it sits on their findings.
