suggestion would be to flatten New Lines (etc.) to the Unicode "picture"
(&#x2424;, I think).  Other whitespace can be handled the same way.

This may

Hyperlinks and "plain text" are not always what they seem once the
Search Engines search and Lawyers lawyer.  So, the "link engineering" you
might want to handle another way[2].

And in the real (American English,
anyway) world you have *nix heads who never met a (possibly irreversible
un-documentable) short-cut they didn't like. Before you allow (lazy) people to
flatten all diacritics out of Plain Text, try this XSLT[3].  You should
download a copy and look at the source because some of the C1 Controls do not
display in browsers, when in fact they have been hijacked by Office Suites for
use as proprietary meta characters and need to be promoted/demoted to lose the
proprietary meaning.
