GPOs, Logons & Line Breaks

I am using W2K's GPOs to display a text message before a user logs on.  I set the text in Local Computer Policy, Computer Configuration, Windows Settings, Local Policies, Security Options.  I entered several lines of text in "Message text for users attempting to log on".  However, the client is unhappy with the way the text displays.  How can I enter a CR/LF pair to make the pre-logon dialog box easier to read?  Thanks in advance.

Probably you can do this with a Carriage return 'CHR(13)' or a linefeed 'CHR(10)' within the text.

Thanks for your response.  I am trying to avoid registry edits as I believe the group policy will take precedence.  I will try the suggestion in tip 2313.  Thanks again.
