"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use .Replace to find any occurences of a newline/carriage return pair and replace them with "<br />" instead.

Dim theString As String = "The quick brown fox" & vbCrLf & "jumped over the" & vbCrLf & "lazy dog."

Label1.Text = theString.Replace(vbCrLf, "<br />")
