That was indeed the case. As I noted, BBEdit handles all three of the
standard formats transparently, but if you have a file which has a mixture
of one plus another you are going to run into problems. When dealing with
files which might be edited by apps such as TeXShop, make sure the files
are saved with Unix line endings so as to avoid problems like this.
