I know vbcrlf indicates a carriage return line feed. Is there a similiar vb string constant to indicate a paragraph break.

Why can't you use <p> tag ? Could you explain in what situation you need ?
They have a vbformfeed but they say not used in windows

vbFormFeed Chr(12) Form feed; not useful in Microsoft Windows

An explanation woudl be better or using <p> tag may solve your problem

I thought of using the <p> tag allright, but just wondered if there was an alternative as I am trying to parse and xml file, however it ignores paragraph breaks due to the .Load method used for parsing the xml file.
I can place <p> in the xml text but just thhought I could get around from doing this.

Well, since the UniCode character is widely recognized, and that there is no keystroke for a paragraph, you will not be able to trap a <p> event.

Like this;

theStr = "<HTML><head>" & Chr(13) & _
    "<title>Document Form</title>" & Chr(13) & _
    "</head><BODY>" & Chr(13) & _
    "<H1>Document Form</H1>" & Chr(13) & _

MSXML is using Chr(13) to separate lines within objNode.text. You would replace Chr(13) by <br> by a msxsl:script function - see . Check and ask if there are questions; it's easy but getting started eventually is not.
