Problem / Question:

What does Chr(10) mean when found in a web page’s code?


CHR(10) is the same as vbLF. It's the "newline" character. In Windows text files, each line ends with CHR(13) followed by CHR(10). Or vbCR followed by vbLF.

In other systems—notably Linux and UNIX—each line of a text file ends with *ONLY* CHR(10).
