Firstly, using alerts for this is ridiculous, even I have to admit. Better off using form elements and DOM for altering text, etc.
Secondly, you can't spread an alert across more than one line, AFAIK. If you need, declare a variable, and do:
thisVar = "blah blah blah";
thisVar += "more blah more blah";
thisVar += "EVEN MORE";
I rarely use prompt, and I don't think keyboard 1 or 2 will affect anything.. just clicks.
If anyone knows of a website that can offer ColdFusion help that isn't controlled by neurotic, pedantic jerks* (stackoverflow.com), please PM me with a link.
