say anything about tag files.
I have just tried my version of 6.1 and it handles Mac and Unix tags files.
The difference between my version and the "official" version is, that
i don't use fgets_cr anymore.
So far I have seen no negative side effect, maybe we should make that official.
It is only used 3 times in the source and it's removal will help to
clean up the code. This may cause problems with older
compilers/libraries, but works fine with CW Pro2.
If this works for you I will prepare a patch for 5.8 and 6.1 and send
it to Bram to make the change official.
I'm not sure if we can get rid of USE_CR as well, but I will look
into it over the long weekend.

works sometimes when the tags file is in Unix format.
This means we have to document that the tags file has to be in Mac format.
Sorry. Things will hopefully get better in OS X which has Unix format
as a default. I'm currently in the painfull process of migration.
