I want to give linebreak on Wordpress theme's description in style.css (the one in here):

Theme Name: 
Theme URI: 
Author URI: 

But it appears the formatting doesn't allow any linebreak. When I tried writing on the line below it, the text won't appear. I tried adding /n as a mean to add linebreak, but the /n/ wasn't read as linebreak.

Is it not possible to add linebreaks in Wordpress theme's description? I think linebreaks may be useful when theme designer wants to outline something in points/bullets (what I've been trying; that is I want to outline several features of the theme).

Sorry, to say - the question is valid, but I can't come up with a longer answer. Wouldn't make sense to explain the internals on this topic :)

Oh, ok! I wasn't expecting a long answer too :) Just want to know whether it's possible or not. Perhaps it could serve some use if it's made possible in future development. :? – deathlock Sep 26 '12 at 2:25
