I'm not sure there is a generic answer.  Some things ignore
the CR's, some don't.  It's always a good idea to remove
them.  On Windows you can edit in wordpad instead of notepad and
it will put them back.  If you edit in vim (either windows
or Linux versions) you can write either way with the:
:set fileformat
