Page breaks in a form text field?

I really need to get this done... And I've googled and googled it.

I have a text box in a form, with terms that somebody has to agree to before the submit button is made active.

But if you look at the terms and conditions-- there are no paragraph or line breaks.


If I put paragraph or line breaks in, the show up in the code.

The form is in Wordpress and I am working in the HTML window. (I just pasted this code from a javascript library site.)

Can anybody please tell me how to divide the content without showing actual <br> tags in the text area?

Thank you in advance!
