Control-H to open the Replace menu, for "Find What" put "\n" (minus 
quotes) and for "Replace With" put in "xxlinexx".  Then add a check to 
the third box on the left hand column labled "Regular Expression".  I'd 
do a find first (top right button) to make sure you find a '\n' and then 
replace it.  If all goes well then just hit "Replace All" and Bob's yer 

I have to use this all the time to replace spaces with tabs (or <br> 
with <br />).
