> Sites generated by Forrest have inconsistent line endings when created on a Windows platform.

> I did a little testing, here's what I have discovered so far:
> - any file that is processed by XSLT has the line endings problem
> - on investigating one such file (index.html) I discovered that the  generated comments
from site2xhtml.xsl (such as breadtrail comment) have LF endings whilst most other lines have
CRLF endings.
> I'm running on Windows, and get the same results whether I run under 
> To reproduce run "forrest site" in any site and check out the generated docs in build/site.
> This appears to a result of the XSLT transformations. xsl:comments retain the line endings
contained in the XSL file, whilst other line endings are set to the environment default.
> Is there a way to tell the XSLT transformer what line endings to use?
