How is new line character stored in multiple lines text field when type is Plain text?

Hi All!,

   Does anyone know how SharePoint stores new line character in a 'multiple lines of text' field of type 'Plain text' ? 

Basically, I have a site column of type 'multiple lines of text' and is set to 'Plain text'.

I'm trying to pass the text + new line entered into this 'multiple lines of text' field to a web service call (SOAP) in Nintex workflow.

However I found that new line character in 'multiple lines of text' column seem to strip off.

Would be appreciated if anyone can tell me how I would be able to pass the whole text + new line characters in a web service call.

Thanks in advice.

Found a solution now.  I created a 'multiple line text' workflow variable and use 'Regular expression' workflow action to convert stored \n to {Common:NewLine}. 

All good.
