	HomeSite does provide a means to save files in either Unix or
Macintosh format, which I assume would address this problem. To set it to
one of the alternate formats, click the Options menu > select Settings... >
File Settings node > locate the "Format when saving" box.
	Unfortunately, HomeSite does not offer a built-in way to save
individual files in an alternate format, meaning that the user will have to
open the Options property sheet a lot to switch the file format each time.
Another alternative would be to use HomeSite's programmability to write a
script that would toggle the format, and attach that script to a toolbar
