  I would think internally it's LF only since the XML standard
asks to do that remapping, so it's a matter of how your OS ended
up saving an LF character sent to a file. The fact it takes the
liberty to change it silently is just a 'we know better than the
user' silliness embedded in the Windows legacy. 
  The text method use whould end up in xsltSaveResultTo with
an xmlOutputBufferPtr. How the xmlOutputBufferPtr was created depends
how you used xsltproc, I can't guess that ...
