UTF-8 characters are perfectly legal in values, as documented in both the 
RFC and the ldif(5) manpage.

DOS-style line-endings (CRLF instead of just LF) are also perfectly legal 
(though the ldif(5) manpage doesn't mention that).  You can even mix CRLF 
and LF line-endings inside a single file.

(Really folks, the RFC isn't that hard to read.)
