The problem is that boxes can only have a single line (or a box that acts
like a single line) inside them. The way you would have to do this is to use
a \parbox inside the \fbox. Unfortunately, you have to set the width of a
\parbox unless you write a macro that checks the width of the individual
lines and makes it the width of the longest line.

Any other (undoubtedly better!) answers? Could \vbox be used?

Good Luck,
