Alright back with the same but different example problem but this time I think it requires some "formating" and knowledge of "escape characters". As a novice programmer this is the caliber of trouble I am going through lol.

Does this need knowledge of escape characters as well ? ("\t") would this just be the rearrangement of that certain character?

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;

namespace ConsoleAppBannerOutput
{
    class CommentBanner
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            Console.WriteLine("**********************************************");
            Console.WriteLine("Programming Assignment #4\t");
            Console.WriteLine("Developer:\tAlma Kind");
            Console.WriteLine("Date Submitted:\t September 17");
            Console.WriteLine("Purpose:    Provide internal documentation");
            Console.WriteLine("**********************************************");
            Console.ReadKey();

        }
    }
}

the output should match something like this:

***********************************************

*	Programming Assignment #4             *                               

*       Developer:         Alma King          *                                             

*       Date Submitted:    September 17       *                                         

*   Purpose    Provide internal documentation *                                             

***********************************************

Thanks for the help as always!

*UPDATE: there should be "stars" covering both sides of the banner dont know why the other side is disappearing....
