You can try putting line feed/break/new line &/ carriage return like \n\r OR just \n or \r. Also refer to:
http://www.robelle.com/smugbook/ascii.html

You can get more stuff in google about line feed/break/new line and carriage return. Data from MySQL client or JDBC etc. clients will be displayed as entered/updated but when fed into browser etc. the line breaks will come into effect.
