Kindle Fire help

When I post my blog to Facebook through a forwarder it drops all the CR/LF data. This is unique to my Facebook posts. All the other sites render it correctly. Is there a key sequence for a "hard" carriage return on the Fire?.....

Blast from the past: in 1968 I operated an IBM 1620™ computer*. The operator console was an IBM Selectric™ typewriter. We amused ourselves by writing routines to make it loop "tab, tab, tab,tab, cr/lf." Not quite as satisfying as it would have been with a full carriage. We were young, male, and stupid.......

* I also walked 20 miles to school each day through a blizzard; uphill both ways......

Fair winds and following seas :)
