Subject Re: CRLF or LF in our JSON?
Date Thu, 24 Sep 2009 02:30:47 GMT
Good idea.  HTTP says CRLF everywhere except the entity-body, where it  
has no comment.  application/json couldn't care less what we do, but  
since we're serving text/plain:

That seems like a vote for CRLF across the board to me.  Best, Adam
