It may depend on whatever operating system or 
shell you're using. If you're using cmd.exe or,
worse,, but are interested in a
different shell, I've found this one
to work well with win95 and win2k; there are
others freely available as well.

If that idea holds little appeal for you, you
might try using a standalone 'echo' program
such as gnu echo, part of the shell utilities.
You can extract a prebuilt win32 binary here:
