ApplicationResources.properties, and the browser is rendering my <br> tags

Hey,

I'm running into a confusing issue. I have a Struts 1.1 application.

I cannot seem to get line breaks to appear on the page after putting them into my ApplicationResources.properties.

For example, I am using ActionMessages to display the dynamic messages on the page. Here is a property that is getting read:


code from my JSP:


Instead of the page rendering:

Search yielded no results.
Please CONTINUE.


it is rendering:

Search yielded no results.<br>Please CONTINUE.


Note, no line return, and the page is actually showing the <br> tag, and not recognizing it as HTML.

So, now my text values in ApplicationResources.properties are very ugly, and all strung out in one huge line with no line breaks. I'm not sure what I might be doing wrong.

Any ideas on what I might try? Any workarounds?

-Nathan

The "workaround" is to read the tag docs and use the "filter" attribute.
