Add `.gitattributes` to handle line endings consistently across platforms #12
These changes set the text file line endings appropriately independent of the user's operating system or local
Setting the line endings for the relevant operating system stops
For a discussion about how GitHub recommends that line endings be handled in a platform-independent manner, please see: https://help.github.com/articles/dealing-with-line-endings/.
I appreciate that this is a large change to the repository and may be considered to be completely unwarranted. Nevertheless, it improves compatibility across platforms without harming the original Windows usage (I have checked that the files are checked out with CRLF endings on Windows 7, as expected). However, I can understand if you do not wish to merge this change and don't have a problem if it's rejected: the PR is merely intended to be helpful if at all possible :-)
