Working with Strings

This should be an easy question.

I am trying to append a carriage return and line feed between two strings.  

string s1 = "line 1 of text";
string s2 = "line 2 of text";
string s3 = s1 + "(line feed carrige return)" + s2;

I want there to be a carriage return and line feed between s1 and s2 so I can then use ReadLine() to read each line of the string.  I tried using /r and /n between the strings, but then ReadLine() does not work.  It reads the entire string as one line.  This should be an easy question to answer.  I looked around, but I could not find any examples.

Thanks in advance.

you can use "\n" new line not /n :)

try this code

-------------

          static void Main()
          {
               string s1 = "experts";
               string s2 = "exchange";
               string s3 = s1 + "\n" + s2;
                        // "\n" New line
               Console.Write(s3);

          }

-----------------------------

No wonder it did not work.  I was using / instead of \...DUH!  Thanks for your help.
