Text Displayed all in one line

I have a date entry page with a text field that allow mulitple lines.
When data is entered and displayed back, it is all displayed in one
line. Could someone tell me what is wrong?

Thanks,

How are you displaying the text ? If you're just regurgitating what
the user typed in then this is normal: HTML ignores line breaks. You
need to insert line break and paragraph tags as appropriate. The
simple_format helper can do this for you.
