You can wrap it in HTML <pre> tags. This preserves formatting on layout.
Otherwise, you'll have to replace the newlines in your text with <br/>
tags. Products.PythonScripts.standard.newline_to_br will do this for
you, as will the newline_to_br attribute on the dtml-var tag. (You can
find this in the Zope online help.)
Thanks for the help, it seems my company blocks lists
so I did not get your response until this morning when I checked the archives.
