Currently, newlines from Textarea may come in at least two different formats. Most browsers send them as CRLF. But when sent from JS (AJAX), it depends on the browser (Firefox and WebKit seem to send LF-only).
I would suggest to normalize them to LF in all cases. This may also solve the issue about different char counting between client-side and server-side (http://groups.google.com/group/django-users/browse_thread/thread/3161244a2f119444/5fad134a89039d7b?lnk=gst&q=textarea%2C+max_length#5fad134a89039d7b).
