I can't get LaTeX to newline on these forums. The following code produces the LaTeX output shown below:

This\ is\ the\ first\ line \\
This\ is\ the\ second\ line \\


[tex]

This\ is\ the\ first\ line \\
This\ is\ the\ second\ line \\

[/tex]

Isn't "\\" the newline command? Why isn't it working?

I think it needs to be [/tex] at the end not [\tex]. Just a guess, not sure if that's the problem.

No, unfortunately that's not the problem. :(

newline doesn't work at PF (nor does the equation reference system, for that matter)
You have to make separate tex-lines instead.
