Indeed, but this is specific to the "Text" node "string" field: it
lists multiple strings, and each string is rendered on a separate
line. So says the Text node specification.

My note describes what to do when you want a newline character within
a single string. For example, if you place a Script or shader code
within a string, using the data URI, like on

You then need to place a newline *inside* a string.
