An HTML file should never have a LF+CR sequence in it (unless you
generate the file that way  in error or use a hex editor to modify the
normal sequence.).

However, using entities, I think there's more of a chance of seeing a LF+CR.

That chance might not be high enough to worry about though, but maybe.
