You need this:

x="Hi"
y="Heehee"

response.write "x" & vbCrLf & "y"

output:
Hi
Heehee

The "vbCrLf" is built into VBScript for a line break.

Hope this helps

However, if you are trying to output this to HTML, you will need to do something like this.

x="Hi"
y="Heehee"

response.write "x" & "<br>" & "y"

output (in HTML):
Hi
Heehee

I think the first answer is what you are looking for though.
