It would be nice, if WhiteSpace could show new line characters (like the sort of inverted P in OOo or Word and probably others). There is the some option, but at least in my environment, it does not take any effect. It would be exceptionally nice if the kind of new line would be destinguished, <CR> other than <LF> other than the combination or any other new line representation (see also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newline\). I was driven up the wall looking for the cause when Oracle failed to load a csv file, initially exported by Excel, containing new line characters within fields. At least with our environment Oracle stumbles over Windows style new lines within fields. Excel the in-field new lines as Unix-like line feed <LF>. I amended the file and saved it in Windows style and the in-field new lines where changed to windows style and Oracle miserably failed.
Would it be possible to have an option with which new line characters are preserved?
