Default Formatting Alerts

Does anyone know how to format alert messages? For example..

This is my main alert info and then after this info, I want a list as follows:

1) yada yada yada
2) yada yada yada
3) yada yada yada

Is formatting in an alert possible?

You can insert a newline character to get alerts that have more than one line of text.

alert('1) yada yada yada\n2) yada yada yada\n3) yada yada yada');

The newline character is the '\n' in there. However Javascript tends to choke if you insert newlines the other way:

alert('1) yada yada yada
2) yada yada yada
3) yada yada yada');

It doesn't like spanning multiple lines.

AFAIK, the newline character is the one formatting allowed.

HTH!

Rich

I seem to remember that you can use \t for TAB.
