You can use any editor. This is not really important.
I did following :
- got all files from CVS
- checked their linestyle with hex-editor
- wrote a script to
    convert all sources to Unix, then some to DOS style
    (as i remember there are more Unix-style files)
- when I work on Windows ( i use #Develop), i convert all sources to DOS
  and edit them
- on Linux ( with Kate) the files will be in Unix style.
Before check-in, i run the script to bring them to CVS format.
(sometimes i do several diffs to be sure that patches have only valuable

To do conversion, I use dos2unix/unix2dos from cygwin.
So this is basically the reason not to mix styles, conversion will produce
only one.
