Note: I also tried manually editing the GptTmpl.inf file in the GPO. A
commas represents a line break and a comma surrounded by quotes (",")
represents a comma you actually want to show up in the text. Naturally,
I placed two commas where I wanted a double-space, but that truncated
the message as well. I guess it is just not possible.

If you guys know any tricks, I'm all ears.

Subject: [gptalk] Interactive logon: Message text for users attempting
to log on

Have any of you ever come across this problem?


When entering text via Group Policy editor (on a Windows XP workstation)
for the "Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local
Policies/Security Options\Interactive Logon\Interactive logon: Message
text for users attempting to log on" setting, I am unable to
double-space paragraphs. Single CRLFs are recognized, but when try to do
two it looks like it is going to take it, but then filters out the
second CRLF as soon as I click apply.


Searched the web and tried to use a suggestion someone made about using
a non-printing ASCII character (ALT+0160) after the CRLF but all it did
was truncate my message.


I did find a KB article located here
<http://support.microsoft.com/kb/330618>  that is somewhat related but
it says the problem should not exist in Windows XP SP2 (which is what
I'm editing the GPO on).


This isn't a huge deal, but it is bugging the heck out of me. Any help
would be greatly appreciated.
