Yes, it concatenates for line brakes

msg = "This is example " & _
  "of a line break concatenation"

response.write msg.


& means join
_ means got to next line

If you were to write alorentz's example in JScript it would be:

msg = "This is an example " +
  "of a line break concatenation";

Where VB (and VBScript) use the ampersand to concatonate strings JScript uses the plus sign. Also, VB statements are interpreted by line so if you need/want to continue writing the same statement to the next line you need to use an underscore. JScript is more like a C style syntax and should look for a semi-colon to end each statement ... even though they are not required in JScript ...
