I'm afraid it is true. Have you actually tried those two "Save as
type" settings? On the copy of WordPad I have on this XP machine,
which says it's WordPad Version 5.1, the choices are
Rich Text Format (RTF)
Text Document - MS-DOS Format
Unicode Text Document
Opening a text file that had only LF line endings and saving it as
either of the two "Text Document" types will result in a file with
CR-LF line endings. I have found no way to have WordPad save a file
with LF line endings.
