In C#, I forget how you invoke a NewLine in the middle of a string -- so that the string after the newline appears on a -- uh -- new line.

Huh.......the newline is not "showing up" in the string.

The string is being assigned to an asp:Label at runtime

I guess I didn't think that would work in the middle of a string that is going into a Label.Text property.
