Small change for the desktop entry spec

Someone reported that in the current version of the spec, we say:

"Desktop entry files are encoded as lines of 8-bit characters separated
by LF characters."

But UTF-8 characters can use several bytes for one character. We can
either just say "lines separated by LF characters", "lines of text
separated by LF characters" or "lines of UTF-8 characters separated by
LF characters".

Any opinion on what's best here?
