If you've already found this answer, then ignore this email.
I found this out when dealing with cvs setup. DOS and Windows created
text files indicate the end of a line with a CR/LF combo. Linux
indicates it with simply a LF. I dunno if there are simple translators
out there, I'm sure that a simple perl script or batch file could fix
it, depending on which platform you're on.
cvs does this for you transparently. You might be able to setup a cvs
style repository so that this translation gets done automatically.
However, if you're not working with source code, cvs will be like
crushing an ant with a sledge hammer.
Lemme know what you end up doing as I may soon be seeing some of this
