mergeMe into FAQ: Corrupted Source when Downloading and DownloadForMacintosh

Question:
I downloaded a fresh copy of 2.5 and the browser seems to be having problems with offsets into the changes file. Many of the methods have their initial text truncated. A look at the changes file doesn't reveal much, but it is pretty large.

So, for example, when I browse Collection#anyOne, I see the following:

epresentative sample of an element, can be very helpful
when needing to preinfer the nature of the contents of
semi-homogeneous collections"> self do: [:each | ^ each].
^ self errorEmptyCollection


Answer:
When downloading Squeak files which contain text some programs re-interpret line endings. Therefore all files should be downloaded as binary files. When using Stuffit Expander there is a setting which tells it NOT to re-interpret line endings – the default is to change them.
