Hi discussion of this issue has been mixed with the discussion of other
issues.

In order to resolve and close this issue I propose to change the last
paragraph at
http://www.w3.org/International/multilingualweb/lt/drafts/its20/its20.html#storagesize-definition
from:

"The storage size is expressed in bytes and is provided along with the
character set encoding used to store the content."

to

"The storage size is expressed in bytes and is provided along with the
character set encoding and the line break type which will be used when
the content is stored."

In XML content all line breaks are normalized to LF so only LF are
considered as line breaks (but in source XML file you can use other
representations of line breaks recognized by version of XML you use). If
you think that this still needs to be explicitly written in spec, we can
add note along those lines.

If you can't live with this resolution please shout and respond until
April, 2nd. ITS WG would like to resolve and close this issue during the
April, 3rd teleconference.

Thanks and have a nice day,

				Jirka
