Batch file to create a web page thru cgi

Setup:  web server residing on NT file server.

Question:
I'm trying to generate a web page using a simple batch file.  However, the problem I'm running into is in echoing a blank line to the webserver after
Content-type: text/html

In Perl, this would be
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

In DOS, I'm using
@echo off
echo Content-type: text/html


Now, how do I echo a blank line?  Type echo on a line by itself just echos echo is off.

It seems to me that this question should be really easy, but if it isn't, let me know.

Thanks!

Use the command 'echo.' (echo followed by a period). This will output \n to stdout.

Ths your code is:
@echo off
echo Content-type: text/html
echo.
echo.
echo <html>
...

hope this helps...

MaDdUCK,

Thanks.  I knew it was something like that, but I had the space between echo and the period, and that wasn't working very good.
