IIRC, the same results were returned pre-Mac OS X for text
objects; certainly that was the case in Mac OS 9. (I believe that,
before AppleScript 1.9.1 / Mac OS X version 10.2.3, Unicode text
objects only regarded return and the Unicode paragraph-separator
character as paragraph breaks.)
"String" objects have been line-ending-agnostic since AppleScript
1.5.5 (which shipped in Mac OS 9 or 9.1); kai is correct about
Unicode text except that the change was in 10.2.0.
Thanks for the clarification, Chris.
Just to be clear about the OS version regarding the Unicode text
issue, would I be correct in assuming that AppleScript 1.9.1
requires Mac OS X version 10.2.0 or later - but was actually first
included with Mac OS X version 10.2.3?
Yes, that's correct. However, the notion of a particular version of
AppleScript "requiring" a particular version of Mac OS X isn't all
that meaningful, since moving system components to a system version
different than the one they were installed from is inherently
