And you can even do that if you specify an ibm encoding and the 
parser does the "obvious" thing with NEL and maps it to #10
(whilst it is arguable that the mapping for NEL should be 85 which then
wouldn't work without xml 1.1 , this is dubious, it is clearly less
useful and it seems unnatural, one assumes that other text transfers
(eg ftp) between ibm and the ascii world map line to line ends, so it 
see,s unreasonable that the mapping for xml should map ibm new lines to 
#85 which isn't a line end in any ascii/unicode system and is just
presumably there to allow some kind of round tripping.
