<script runat="server">
    void Page_Load(Object Sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        CheckBrowserCaps();
    }

    void CheckBrowserCaps()
    {
        String labelText = "";
        System.Web.HttpBrowserCapabilities myBrowserCaps = Request.Browser;
        if (((System.Web.Configuration.HttpCapabilitiesBase)myBrowserCaps).RequiresNoBreakInFormatting)
        {
            labelText = "Browser supports HTML BR elements to format line breaks.";
        }
        else
        {
            labelText = "Browser does not support HTML BR elements to format line breaks.";
        }

        Label1.Text = labelText;
    }
