Macs before MacOS X (MacOS 9 and older) all use a single carriage return
as the line terminator character. Linefeeds are not used. I don't know if
they take this "outside the box" and use it for HTTP, so I'm not sure if
it's relevant to the discussion. Most MacOS text/source editors still
support different types of line endings, CR-only included.
