I have a master page with meta tags. When doing a view source the meta tags appear in sequential order like there is a carraige return or break tag between them.

I have some pages that require me to change the metadescrpition and metakeywords and I do that on the code behind of the actual product page (see code sample below). On page where the codebehind changes the meta tag info the meta tags run together and are hard to read. How do I get the carriage return visual back?

If it's relevant, main page is .aspx, codebehind is .vb

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        DirectCast(Master.FindControl("metadescription"), HtmlControl).Attributes("content") = "Some Text here"
        DirectCast(Master.FindControl("metakeywords"), HtmlControl).Attributes("content") = "More Text Here"
        Page.Title = "Title info here"

    End Sub
