How to display <br> from a string to html

I have bean class

public class X ......{
String htmlString;
public void getHtmlString()
return htmlString;
public void setHtmlString()
String htmlString_="Hello<br>Hello";
this.htmlString = htmlString_;

From the Jsp page I use
<bean:write name="X" property="htmlString"/>

The output of the jsp displays Hello <br> Hello.

Instead i need a output like

If i use <%= <brString> %> it works fine. It display

Instead if i use <bean:write> then it does not display in next line.

Actually, this is by design.  bean:write escapes all HTML by default so that strings come out as they look, not as HTML tags.

Try adding filter="false" to turn off escaping.

<bean:write name="X" property="htmlString" filter="false"/>
