Are you really saying that we can't store newlines in textual resources???

That does seem to be the root of the problem I'm seeing - I have "\n" seqences in strings held in xrc resources and they are not being expanded into proper newline characters whereas, the statically bound _T("This\nis anewline") works fine.

There must be a way to represent newlines in string resource /somehow/, even if we can't use the standard "\n" for fear of upsetting gettext - someone must have wanted to do this before...???
