Text Paragraph ending

I have a problem where I have a flash chat room and the first thing you do is log in with a name. This works. Next it goes to a loading screen that says thank you (name) and the proceeds to a title area where you choose to either chat, check for friends or change your name. Oh and of course exit. These are all working so far, but one prob. When you hit the send btn (button) it puts the text you typed in the text area with your name first. Example: (NAME): (TEXT)
Problem is it needs a paragragh space first. And I dont know the script for that. Any ideas?
