carriage return replace in string

I need to replace end of line characters ('\n') with html breaks (br).
However, I'm stuck using jdk 1.3.1, so I don't have the luxury of regex.
Any quick and dirty low tech ideas out there?

Must be a low brain power day - I solved my issue as I posted it.
I just move the string to a string buffer, in which I can do the replace, then do toString for output.
Thanks for listening.
