I have several files which are Batch or XML files and on some Windows systems they show correctly (i.e. readable) and some others they show with all the lines run together (i.e. unreadable).

I have a suspicion this is because the line break characters are being interpreted differently by the different windows installs.

Has anyone had this themselves and can point me in the correct location to correct ?
