I need to put line breaks in the product description. I'm using XML for now. My product descriptions use bullet points, so I need line breaks. I guess this would also apply to multi-paragraph descriptions. For Example, I would like to see
- Feature 1
- Feature 2
What I get now is Description -Feature1 -Feature2.
I have tried \n\r in the description, but they get displayed litterally (Description\n\r-Feature1\n\r-Feature2). I have also tried <br />, but that gives me a configureation error.
Is this something that must be done in VB? If so, how. I need the line breaks, I hope someone can help.

try Environment.NewLine, <br />, <br>, \v, (char)11, or \r\n and see if any work.
if not let me know what the configuration error is.

The data string is in an xml file which is read by a .aspx file. The item Description is read by an EVAL command within asp:DetailsView. Code is below.
