including carriage return with XML table data

I'm inserting some data using XML into a table in an InDesign frame.
As part of the text, I'd like to put some carriage returns so that the text has a line break where I'd like it rather than have InDesign do its best guess as to how to split up the lines.

I've tried putting &#8629; and <br/>in the text, but that didn't do what I hoped it might.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I use:

"\u000D" - Carriage return

"\u000A" - Line feed

Thanks for the suggestion.

I put it in, but the InDesign table after I imported the XML just came back with those codes as text.

Here's my tag pair:

<TableTitleText aid:table="cell" aid:ccolwidth= "477">Would you say \u000D\u000Ayou get this moderate physical activity at work or outside work?</TableTitleText>

Is there some other way I need to enter that (or some other) code?

Thanks again.

Roland: Thank you SO MUCH.  It works just like how I want it to.

I never saw that code documented anywhere.  How do you figure that out?

That's standard XML encoding. You can also use &#13; I'm not sure about &#10; or &#xa;

That's weird, I haven't had an issue with this myself... lucky Roland came to the rescue!
