I'm learning the difference now after reading up on it, but I can't find
how to just insert a blank new line..i.e. look at my sig below, it's all
on one line:

-- =Guy 19:24:11 up 21:48, 2 users, load average: 0.74, 0.68, 0.56

but I would like it to look like

--
=Guy
19:24:11 up 21:48, 2 users, load average: 0.74, 0.68, 0.56

I have tried \r and \n but perhaps I am missing some kind of qualifier
like $ before it or something. I apologize for my lack of scripting in
unix knowledge but promise to keep researching and become better.

Thanks.
