Question about the special \n

Hi to all.

Where can I find more information about the special character \n as
used e.g. in the following example?

Plot[x^n /. n -> 2, {x, 0, 10}, PlotLabel -> StringJoin[" This is a
\n", "simple plot \n\n", "    n=2", "\n   -----\n"],  ImageSize ->
{400, 300}]

In Section 2.8.6 of Mathematica Book there is very little infomation.

Are there other special characters  like \n that I must be aware
especially for plots?

Thanks in advance for any help.
