<br> in HTML Documentation
« on: August 15, 2003, 12:55:09 pm »
I have constraints on my entity properties that have carriage returns/line feeds in them. As I posted in other threads, I haven't had luck with the RTF documentation printing these correctly, so I tried the HTML documentation.

It APPEARS that it's trying to put them in, but they just show up as "<br>" in the HTML docs, as opposed to carriage returns.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this? Or is this simply a  bug in EA?

Thanks,
Dave

I don't think you will find the "carriage return" (CR) is part of HTML. Often a document CR is mapped to <p> </p>, or when simply a line break within a paragraph would be mapped to <br> in HTML.

I should have been more clear.

I'm seeing "<br>" on-screen instead of the text being wrapped to the next line.

So, in other words, it appears that EA is TRYING to build the HTML with the line breaks built in, but <br> is appearing instead of a line break when I view the documentation in IE.
