For Windows, use:

        fwrite($Open, "Text to add to file.\r\n");

And for Mac, I think it's:

        fwrite($Open, "Text to add to file.\r");

Aren't standards wonderful?  ;-)

If you want a more general solution, you might play with something like:

    $text="This is the first line.\nAnother line makes two.\n";
    if ($target=="win")
        $text=str_replace( "\n", "\r\n", $text);
    else if ($target=="mac")
        $text=str_replace( "\n", "\r", $text);
    fwrite($Open, $text);

Set your $target somewhere (maybe by parsing HTTP_USER_AGENT), and you
can stick with consistent use of UNIX-style text in your PHP.

There's probably a more elegant way to do this, but I don't know it.
