by sheer chance I opened up two different text files in emacs. One of them had DOS displayed in the bottom left corner of the info. bar while the other didn't. The neat thing about the former is that I can edit it with emacs on my Mac and then transfer it to my Windows machine without having to worry about the carriage returns. When I edit the later (none DOS file) all of the carriage returns are replaced by boxes when I open it up in Notepad.
Now sadly I can't remember how I created the "DOS" file. I have tried several different variations: ANSI format, Unicode and googeling around to no avail.
Does anyone know how to create a text file which when opened up in emacs has s DOS displayed in the bottom left corner of the info bar?
