Re: Gag me with a blunt …

I can understand IBM wanting to change XML to make things work on OS390 and
I can understand many XML developers wanting to keep things the way they

What I don't understand is if NELs and CRs mean the same thing, why do they
have different Unicode representations?
If they are the same thing then I would tentatively suggest that Unicode is
at fault.  Then the question would be: should Unicode be fixed or should XML
be required to accommodate Unicode's short-comings?
