I've used Programmer's File Editor for general text editing for a few years
now. It displays both Unix and DOS style files, allows editing, and saves
the file in it's original format. It also allows easy conversion of the
occasional file; load it, double-click on the format indicator in the
status bar until it shows the right format, then save.

See for info.
