New line after every 5 words

New line after every 5 words

(OP)
I am currently using replace function to add a new line after each "." but will be more presentable if there is a new line after every 5 words? How can I add a new line after every 5 words?

RE: New line after every 5 words

Since words can vary in length I would think a good approach would be div tag of a certain width rather than ASP that adds a line break. Or is there more to this?

That all depends on what it is you are presenting.

An 'article' would be horrible to read, a list of words or data not so bad.

In plain text or as HTML?

You mean to *twitch* break your text to make it more presentable? poke
Why don't you put it in a div of a certain class and simply define the width of that div via css? Maybe with justified layout even?

RE: New line after every 5 words

I'm not sure it will looks good, but back to original question
you can split your text by " " (space) and when reassemble line back insert new line after every 5 array alements
