Query editor mistery

If a statement is terminated by ascii 0D only, SQL 2000 query analyzer can parse it correctly. But in SQL 2005 SSMS query editor, it will give an error.
Run the following code in SQL 2000 and SQL 2K5, copy the printed message from the message pane into the query editor respectly and run.



In SQL 2000, it is succeeded. In SQL 2005, it gives the error

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 1

Incorrect syntax near ‘GO’.


If we change the code to:


PRINT ‘SET QUOTED_IDENTIFIER OFF’+nchar(13)+nchar(10)+‘GO’

Repeat the above process, it is succeeded both in SQL 2000 and SQL 2005
