In the CHANGES file:

=head2 Version 2.4.0 (Release Candidate 1)  May 21, 2003
=item * New Directive: PropertyNamesNoStripChars

Swish replaces all series of low ASCII chars with a single space
character.  This option instructs swish to store all chars in the
property. [moseley]


=item PropertyNamesNoStripChars

PropertyNamesNoStripChars specifies that the listed properties should
not have strings of low ASCII characters replaced with a space
character.  Properties will be stored as found in the document.

When printing properties with the swish-e binary newlines are replaced
with a space character.  Use the swish-e library (or SWISH::API perl
module) to fetch properties without newlines replaced.
