  http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2616#section-19.4.2 gives some
thoughts on the subject:

    19.4.2 Conversion to Canonical Form

    RFC 2045 [7] requires that an Internet mail entity be
    converted to canonical form prior to being transferred, as
    described in section 4 of RFC 2049 [48]. Section 3.7.1 of
    this document describes the forms allowed for subtypes of the
    "text" media type when transmitted over HTTP. RFC 2046
    requires that content with a type of "text" represent line
    breaks as CRLF and forbids the use of CR or LF outside of
    line break sequences. HTTP allows CRLF, bare CR, and bare LF
    to indicate a line break within text content when a message
    is transmitted over HTTP.

  So I would say the test is correct now :-)

  Hope that helps,

Florent Georges
