Title

Need to export text and retain line breaks

Post

I need to export a text field, and retain line breaks in the output file.

Any thoughts on the best way to do this?

Should I replace line breaks (with some substution function) in the text field with a delimiter like ~ and then convert back once in the .tab file? 

(I'd rather not have to post process the file if possible).

Or, is there a way to do this with xml/xslt (which I have not yet learned).

Also, is there a way to retain text formatting (bold or italic) in the export file?

thanks

Dave
