      A better explanation of why multi-line strings are useful will be added. The advantage is incremental, really, but the example is better justified as follows:

      "The difference between these two approaches is that the latter obscures the fact that the first and fourth line are at the same indentation level, and makes it appear there are two rules because of the asterisk in the first column. The former approach allows the first line to be empty so the string is defined as a block, and allows the entire block to be indented, so visually, it does not appear a second rule is involved."
