| On the contrary, the handling script needs to know the implication of
| the presence or absence of CRs and LFs.

It does, CR/LF mark the end of "lines"...  Because the spec states that
wrapping or scroll bars should be implemented, the user should use
whole sentences and paragraphs per line...  I do, and I always will. 
If your CGI converts my text to PRE and returns it, thats wholely your
problem, not mine, as it was/is Netscapes.
