Not sure if it'll help, but whenever I do newline normalization to LF, I:
Convert all CR + LF pairs to LF.
Then, I convert any CRs left over to LF.
LF + CR + LF + CR -> LF + LF + LF.
CR + CR + LF -> LF + LF.
In the case of <!DOCTYPE
Opera produces LF + CR in the dom for the div nodeValue.
Firefox produces LF + LF (What I'd expect.)
IE6 produces a space. (If the div consists of only those 2 entities
(without the 1 and the 2), IE6 throws the newlines away and there will
be no childNodes for the div.)
FF's way seems right IMO.
