Since vb is being dropped at v 10.1, will text formatting such as vbnewline be replaced by "\n" as in python? Can both be used?

Sorry if this is the wrong place, but I'm not a beta user.

Thank you.

As far as I know VB Script is not being dropped for labelling or the field calculator at 10.1 and is already implemented at 10.  VBA scripts area being restricted to read only at 10.1 and has been dropped from the Field Calculator at 10.  vbnewline in a label is compatible with VB Script and will continue to work.  Python does not work for labels, but does work for the Field Calculator.

Thank you for the reply...

I guess my response is "ugh"! Seems like if esri is going to support (and push) python in the calculator and elsewhere, they would support it in labeling. In my experience, it's easier in python.
