Losing line breaks when posting back with CWP

I have what I think is a simple question. I have a CWP solution where users post information on a web form. The webform feeds a record in FM Pro 11, and when we approve the information to fit our criteria, the information is then posted back on the website for others to see. For one liner information, this is not a problem. However, in multi-line text fields, when the user enters line breaks (which FM recognizes and maintains easily), posting the information back on the web ends up with a single, ugly, block of text, instead of the carefully formatted line of text.


I tried using a calculation field adding some kind of html line break (e.g., <br>), but all I get back on the web page is the actual tag; no line break.


Can someone please tell me what I need to do to publish the line breaks back on the website?
