the information that you have ^M^J (MSDOS) linebreaks is gone before
XSLT even starts, the XML XML spec mandates that an XML parser
normalises any of ^M, ^M^J and ^J to a  ^J (#10) character.

Similar;y when serialising, a system can outbreak line ends in any of
these forms, although it seems most just use ^J always.

If your later application needs dos line ends it may be simplest just to
run something like unix2dos over the generated file.
