That is the usual convention for displaying a carriage return, a chr$(13), used 
as the end of line marker in non-unix-ish systems.  unix-ish systems have 
nearly always used a linefeed, a chr$(10), for the EOL character.  And M$ 
systems use both just to try and be different. 30+ years ago most printers 
needed both.
