      Description

      Sites generated by Forrest have inconsistent line endings when created on a Windows platform.

      I did a little testing, here's what I have discovered so far:
       
      - any file that is processed by XSLT has the line endings problem
      - on investigating one such file (index.html) I discovered that the generated comments from site2xhtml.xsl (such as breadtrail comment) have LF endings whilst most other lines have CRLF endings.
       
      I'm running on Windows, and get the same results whether I run under
      CYGWIN or DOS.
       
      To reproduce run "forrest site" in any site and check out the generated docs in build/site.

      This appears to a result of the XSLT transformations. xsl:comments retain the line endings contained in the XSL file, whilst other line endings are set to the environment default.

      Is there a way to tell the XSLT transformer what line endings to use?
