Is it possible to search & replace line breaks using JSTL?

I want to populate a JS array with code coming from the database, but there is some text which comes with line breaks within it. Is there any way to search for the line breaks and remove then, so the JS can read it all alright??

As per forum instructions, please indicate the versions of JSP and the JSTL that you are using.

JSP - 2.0
JSTL - 1.1

Look up the fn EL functions of the JSTL 1.1 in the JSTL 1.1 Specification. They're primarily focused on string manipulation.
