How about newlines within comments ?

How can I do it? I tried the "two spaces thing" and it didn't work. Is it really not possible to enter a carriage return in a comment?

Thanks and sorry for such a lame question.

Comments only support a limited form of markdown and no HTML support. As such, there is no support for new lines of any form. See meta.stackexchange.com/questions/50444/… for more details. Also, you shouldn't apologize for asking an honest question, even if it seems so simple. – Grace Note Jul 1 '10 at 10:54
    
This is technically a duplicate of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/53576/…, but since that one is closed I will be instead voting for the root at meta.stackexchange.com/questions/197/… that addresses newlines specifically. – Grace Note Jul 1 '10 at 11:08

As Grace Note noted :) Comment don't support newlines: Stack Overflow comments don't have formatting tags or line breaks?
