Forcing carriage returns

Has anyone found a way to force carriage returns after a line when tranferring via a USB cable?

I've tried constructing text strings with imbedded carriage returns, but the Kindle does not seem to recognize them.

What file type are you transferring? TXT should show the carriage returns; HTML will not. You need the <br> tag instead.

I'm transferring a straight .txt file that I've embeded some carriage returns into. Was hoping that would result in a new line on the kindle screen. There was no difference in viewing it with or without the breaks.

I'll try an HTML file with the <br> and see if I have any better luck there

thanks,

Actually, what you want is a line feed, not a carriage return (hex 0a instead of hex 0d, or 0d0a will probably work).
