well spotted jon :)

i think that i should really be using ConcreteElement.lineSeparator.

problem is that the way that XMLDocument is structured makes it really 
hard to do things properly without major surgery. i've never liked how 
XMLDocument was written but i've never really had any real desire/need to 
rewrite it. hence the path of least resistance...

i'm also not very confident about the encoding logic in XMLDocument. i'd 
need to think about the right way to convert the line.separator string to 
the byte array that's required.

if you think that it's an improvement that's worth the effort, i'll try to 
get up to speed on the encoding and make the change. (but it might take me 
a while)
