Not precisely encoding. What you are seeing is Notepad's 
response to Unix line feeds. Normally on Windows, end of lines
are marked with both a CR (carriage return) and LF (line feed). 
UNIX machines, however, just use LF. 

With Homesite and other 'Unix-aware' editors, they display
the LF just like the CR-LF. But Notepad is very Windows-centric
and won't do this for you (hence the empty box characters and 
bad wrapping). 

It has no affect on how your XML or the output of the transformation
is handled, since browsers also have no problem with this. Saxon
is just following the Unix formal while XT is giving you Windows
line ends.
