Putting Stuff Before the Message Box

Hello again,

I apologize in advance.  Maybe it's the meds.  I created a list with  
three lines:

	put "One" & return & "Two" & return & "Three" into theList

I want to have the message box display

3
One
Two
Three


Why does

  	put theList
	put the number of lines in theList & return before msg

put only 3 into the message box and not the list itself?

But

    put the number of lines in theList
    put return & theList after msg

works fine.

Can the message box not handle before?


	Gregory
