escape sequences generally take the form of \x where x is the special escape character for whatever you need to escape. for newlines the character you need to use is n. so the escape sequence for a newline is \n

note that that is a back slash, not a forward slash. Here is a table that shows you some common escape sequences for javascript strings.
