In order for this to display in a browser, you will need to include the actual HTML to perform a line break.

echo $subject . "<br />" . $op1;

echo $subject."\n".$op1;
the newline char must be enclosed in double quotes

PHP is designed to generate HTML, so if you are viewing your results in a browser, use the HTML newline: br


 echo $subject."<br />".$op1;

Open in new window
