I am reading information from a XML file into a Dataset and loading it to a webpage.  I wanted to keep the format from the XML file such as line break (see code example).  I loaded the xml to dataset as ds.ReadXml(filename) and loaded it do a table.  How can i make line break from text in <blog> in XML file appear in webpage??

Use :
tr.Cells[0].Text = "<FONT size = 2 FACE = Verdana color = #8F8672 >" + dr[3].ToString().Replace("\n","<br>") + "</FONT>";
               
Replace real newlines with the <br> tag.
