 I have done this with a signon screen we use. It works great.

However I have a "wierd" thing happening in my message text.
There are 3 formating control characters that can be used in second level 
message
text.
They are &N, &P, and &B. They are to skip to new lines on the display.
If I display the message text through DSPMSG or WRKMSGD the message is formated.
 HOWEVER,  on my display file, the message is not formated to skip to new lines,
BUT the control characters are gone on the screen.

What gives?  (or what did I brake?)  Is there a DDS keyword that deals with
formatting of messages?
