Subject RE: application resources and escape characters
Date Sun, 25 Jul 2004 13:27:18 GMT
In response to my own post:

I apologize for being stupid. I did not realize that the properties editor
of my IDE (netbeans) automatically converted escape characters as well as
other special characters... So every \n I typed became a \\n :( No wonder it
didn't work. 

Cheers, Jan
