Message Box, multiple lines

The multi-line message box will execute if the actual "enter" key is  
depressed. The key on many machines that says "enter" on it, may, in  
Rev's view, actually be the "return" key and generate a  
"returnInfield" message for the multi-line message box.

On most machines (esp. laptops), holding down the function key and  
depressing the actual "return" key will result in an "enterInField"  
message to be sent to the message box.

On desktop machines, most of their keyboards have an actual "enter"  
key at the bottom right corner.
