Waterfall MOTD formatting

I have googled and googled, but I am trying to find out how the MOTD is formatted within Waterfall config.yml.
I discovered the use of § instead of &. But I am trying to find out how to make 2 lines of MOTD and
how to use special characters like bungee did before. Any info or links to more info on this topic would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

This should be identical to bungee. & has never been an official symbol, just something plugins do a string replace to section for.

But I believe you just do a new line in yaml syntax

I use a plugin called CleanMOTD, so try it, maybe it will solve your issue.
