Avoid append operations with the Replace function

I find the Replace function very useful when I want to avoid too many append operations just to insert non-printable characters. For example, the following statement:

MsgBox "Disk not ready." & vbCr & vbCr & _
    "Please check that the diskette is in the drive" & vbCr & _
    "and that the drive's door is closed."
Here's a slightly more concise statement, that uses a temporary separator and then replaces it with the CR character:

MsgBox Replace("Disk not ready.§§Please check that the diskette is in the " _
    & "drive§and that the drive's door is closed.", "§", vbCr)
