I cannot reproduce this.  How did you download this page to your disk?
I used a Windows port of the wget command.  I see only ASCII blanks in
the file.

Can't reproduce this, either.  I see "(Unix)", but no stray ^M
characters anywhere in sight.

What you see means that the EOL format of the file is inconsistent:
some lines have the DOS CR-LF pair, others plain Unix-style LF
characters at the end of the line.

Or maybe it has something to do with your customizations; does the
same problem happen in "emacs -Q"?

"1" means it's Latin-1, "(Unix)" means that it has Unix-style EOL

I cannot say, until I'm able to reproduce the problem on my machine.

What version of Emacs do you use, btw?
