 These all worked beautifully, thank you everyone. I think I will go with the echo -en at the xymon call, that seems to be the cleanest way to do it.

Xymon will display HTML inline, so you can do anything HTML.  The emails it sends out are plain text by default though, so you would see any html code there. 
You can try this:
MSG=”${MSG}\nAppended text”
Then your submit command would be like this:
$(echo -e ${MSG})
Echo -e would interpret the newline and actually insert it at that point.

I'm wondering if there's any way to insert a newline in a message. I know it's possible to do by actually putting it on another line in the script but I don't like the way that it looks because it messes up all the indenting in the script, so that's why I was wondering if there's a newline character that xymon supports, \n doesn't work it just append a literal "\n".
An example of the way I can get it to work, but looks bad:
appended text"
How I would like it work:
MSG="${MSG}\nappended text"

What about:
MSG=`echo -en "${MSG}\nappended text\n"`
