Multiple lines

Hi Jim,

You said we can't split a text on multiple lines of code in JS and the concatenation is the only solution we have... how about

var string = "First line \
Second line \
Third line";

and also, for multiple lines in the output

var string = "First line \n\
Second line \n\
Third line";

Yes, this works fine. Further in the tutorial, Jim discusses how this is done. I think it's in the Methods bit :)
