characters that are immediately followed by a carriage-return line-feed

If the same document is saved in "Stream" format (e.g. if the document is
available via a PATHWORKS network share and I open it in Notepad), the
document prints correctly. And an extra carriage-return line-feed shows up in
the document when I open it usin
g the VMS EDT editor! Any ideas on what's causing this?
