I have the following code that sends a .txt file and email, but I would like to add a page break or something (open to suggestions) that would make the application signatures not move dependent on how much data the user enters.  Line 7 is where I would like it and what I have there is not working


email_body .= "------ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ------" . "\n" ;
	$email_body .= "Have you ever been a party to an eviction?: " . stripslashes($_POST[eviction]) . "\n" ;
	$email_body .= "Have you ever filed Bankruptcy?: " . stripslashes($_POST[bankruptcy]) . "\n" ;
	$email_body .= "Have you ever been convicted of a Crime?: " . stripslashes($_POST[convicted]) . "\n" ;
	$email_body .= "Please provide the best phone number where we can reach you: " . stripslashes($_POST[bestphone]) . "\n" ;
	$email_body .= "Please provide an email address where we can contact you: " . stripslashes($_POST[emailaddress]) . "\n\n\n" ;
        $email_body .= ."{page-break-after: always}". ;
        $email_body .= "Applicant 1 Signature:____________________________ \n\n\n" ;
        $email_body .= "Applicant 2 Signature:____________________________ \n" ;

You can't really do that with plain text emails. To be honest, the best way to approach this would be to generate a PDF and send it, since PDF docs support actual page breaks.
