Subject Re: line breaks
Date Wed, 22 Jan 2003 05:30:33 GMT
My problem is that the data in my DB and the form-beans contain line breaks
but when I populate <nested:textarea> or <html:textarea> with these values
the line-breaks go away and I see the text as one block.

BTW I am using redirect=true but I dont think that should make a difference.

Anyone with such experience/ideas? Thanks for your help.
