I would like the have a line breat in a button test.  Instead of this

 -----------------------------------------
| This needs a break here. Did it get it? |
 -----------------------------------------

I want this;

 ----------------------------------------
|        This needs a break here.       |
|          Did it get it?               |
 ----------------------------------------


Here's the code;

<input type="button" name="cmdBreak" value="This needs a break here. Did it get it?" width="125" height="200" style="height:200">

Any Ideas?

Use a character entity:

value="This needs a break here.&#10;Did it get it?"

Worked for me with IE 5.5.

Or
value="This needs a break here.&#13;Did it get it?"

10 is carriage return and 13 is line feed (or the other way round).

You can even include them both if you want to make sure of platform and browser support.
value="This needs a break here.&#10;&#13;Did it get it?"

Or you could just design a button image however you want and use that as your submit button...

<INPUT NAME="submit" TYPE="IMAGE" SRC="http://www.your-server.com/path/to/your.gif" HEIGHT=72 WIDTH=72 BORDER=0>
