Line breaks in javascript mouseover text

Is it possible to have a line break in the javascript text for a mouseover?  The following is the code for the mouseover

<img src="images/alliancelogos/dtzlogo.gif" width="173" height="70" alt="Premier Communities" onMouseover="ddrivetip('DTZ Rockwood - Throughout its 18-year history, DTZ Rockwood has specialized in advising clients regarding the resolution of underperforming assets. Website: www.dtzrockwood.com. Contact: Steven Jacobs Phone: 212-286-5800','white', 300)";
onMouseout="hideddrivetip()"/>

the following is the javascript code that I used.  Any help would be appreciated!

<div id="dhtmltooltip"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">

var offsetxpoint=-60 //Customize x offset of tooltip

var ie=document.all
var ns6=document.getElementById && !document.all
var enabletip=false
if (ie||ns6)
var tipobj=document.all? document.all["dhtmltooltip"] : document.getElementById? document.getElementById("dhtmltooltip") : ""

function ietruebody(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body

function ddrivetip(thetext, thecolor, thewidth){

tipobj.innerHTML=thetext

return false

}

var leftedge=(offsetxpoint<0)? offsetxpoint*(-1) : -1000

//if the horizontal distance isn't enough to accomodate the width of the context menu

//move the horizontal position of the menu to the left by it's width
tipobj.style.left=ie? ietruebody().scrollLeft+event.clientX-tipobj.offsetWidth+"px" : window.pageXOffset+e.clientX-tipobj.offsetWidth+"px"
else if (curX<leftedge)
tipobj.style.left="5px"
else
//position the horizontal position of the menu where the mouse is positioned
tipobj.style.left=curX+offsetxpoint+"px"

//same concept with the vertical position
if (bottomedge<tipobj.offsetHeight)

tipobj.style.visibility="visible"
}
}

function hideddrivetip(){
if (ns6||ie){
enabletip=false
tipobj.style.visibility="hidden"
tipobj.style.left="-1000px"
tipobj.style.backgroundColor=''
tipobj.style.width=''
}
}

document.onmousemove=positiontip

Well it should be perfectly possible to use html in the popup, so you could use <br/> but haven't studied that script. Try putting in <br/> for the hell of it

I've tried putting the html break in there, but every time I do that it breaks the code and the mouseover doesn't work anymore.
