Here's the implementation data from smontagu's tests:

Impl      <BR>     <PRE> CR/LF
IE7        PS          PS
IE8        LS          LS
IE9        LS          PS
Chrome9   PS/LS       PS/LS
Safari5   PS/LS       PS/LS
FF3.6      LS          LS
Opera11    LS          LS

To summarize, the ideal behavior would be IE9's, i.e.
Ideal      LS          PS
The safest behavior is probably IE7's,
Safe       PS          PS
