i would like to output strings on seperate lines from an xml file

_root.presentation.Retailers.waslide.waholder.text = this.firstChild.childNodes[i].childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue+this.firstChild.childNodes[i].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;

this outputs like this

storename address
but i would like a break between the lines

so it outputs

storename
address

may sound like a stupid question but how do i include a carriage return to bring the second string to the next line?
thanks

You could try adding the '\n' like this...

_root.presentation.Retailers.waslide.waholder.text = this.firstChild.childNodes[i].childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue + '\n' + this.firstChild.childNodes[i].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;

If you are putting this into a dynamic text field within a Flash clip you can use 'newline'.  Like so:
_root.presentation.Retailers.waslide.waholder.text = this.firstChild.childNodes[i].childNodes[0].firstChild.nodeValue + newline + this.firstChild.childNodes[i].childNodes[1].firstChild.nodeValue;
