	Create a new Flash document next, 800 x 600 pixels with a frame rate of 30. When you are finished with the brochure, use the Import menu in Adobe Flash to bring your Illustrator document into the new Flash document. Move and resize elements to create an online presentation from your brochure. Ensure that all text areas were imported correctly and the font, font size, and text color match the print document.

Each image in the gallery should be linked to a PDF created with Adobe Illustrator that includes the high-resolution version of the image, the product name, and the pricing information.

You can't put strings on multiple lines. In Javascript, the end of the statement is when the line breaks, so you can't do something like this:
var string = "I thought this would be valid
but it wasn't";

You can replace the breaks in the string with either the newline character, "\n", or the HTML break tag, "<br />" depending on where the text will go. Like this:

var1 = "I'm a string that's going \n into an alert or textarea \n cheers!";
var2 = "I'll be put into regular html <br/> cheers!";
var3 = "Here's how you can break up strings that are really "+
    "long and need to be shortened in order to fit into the "+
    "text editor's viewing window, assuming it does not have word-"+
    "wrap enabled, which it shouldn't anyways. Also make sure you "+
    "always put spaces in where they are needed! <br/><b>Cheers!</b>";
