i have a class that holds a description field which is a
. I would like to know if it's possible to give line brakes in this desciption.
in html it would look like this :
desciption first part
desciption second part
The String is just printed out to the screen like this
desciption first part <br /> desciption second part
So there is no linebrake and the user sees the <br/> element printed out to the screen.
I also tried the '/n' new line in the String field, this also doesn't work.
So the question is, how can i print out a string and give the String elements in order to know where to put linebrakes.
