Rumor has it that John W. Linville may have mentioned these words:

It automagically notices any line ending, and you can set a default to any
line ending you want: MS-DOS/Linux/Mac.
I liked it so much, I paid for it. There's not a lot of development anymore
for it, but it doesn't really need it - it's very easy to get color
profiles for just about anything (including several processors assembly),
it's relatively small, fast, and *lots* of features, including regexp
search & replace.
That said, there are many other "Notepad Replacements" that can handle
multiple line ending scenarios. Google is your friend. ;-)
