I have a custom label "This seat is already matched to another student. Please remove the existing match before matching this student." I want to display "Please remove the existing match before matching this student." in another line line in LWC HTML. HTML code:

<div class="slds-notify slds-notify_alert" role="alert">{label.match_success}</div>

Can we directly mention something in custom label so that it comes in new line or I have to manipulate in js file?

Adding my comment as answer.

For this we can use lightning-formatted-rich-text and add html tags in our custom labels.

For eg:

<lightning-formatted-rich-text value={label.labelWithHtml}></lightning-formatted-rich-text>


    <value>labelWithHtml <br> labelWithHtml</value>

As mentioned by Nagendra, I used lightning formatted rich text tag

<lightning-formatted-rich-text value={label.empty_table}></lightning-formatted-rich-text>

and updated my label with "br" tag.
