The minor problem is that when it appears in character data, lots of unix & mac & windows software will not realize that there ought to be a line break. The major problem is that when it appears in a tag, e.g. <t a1="1" a2="2"> (where there's a NEL after the "1") then the XML processor will kick this out. -Tim
