      "[...] that is, ones not technically on the Web"

    2. This poses a problem that we'll need to address.

      Add a liaison/segue sentence here (after this one) that says "Browsers, in fact, were not designed with triple scripts in mind at all."

      "Web browsers"

    4. This is of course ideal

      huh?

    7. [ 0, 0, 0, 1 ]

      Or, to put it another way, given a statement let stats = checker.getStats(), the following results are true:

      stats[LineChecker.TYPE_NONE] // evaluates to `1`
      stats[LineChecker.TYPE_CR]   // evaluates to `0`
      stats[LineChecker.TYPE_LF]   // evaluates to `0`
      stats[LineChecker.TYPE_CRLF] // evaluates to `1`

      "... by getStats."

    11. In fact, this is the default for DOS-style text-processing utilities.

      Note that the example cited is "a single line of text". We should emphasize that this isn't what we mean when we say that this is the default for DOS-style text files. (Of course DOS supports multi-line text files. It's just that the last line will have no CRLF sequence.)
