Community Tip - Did you get called away in the middle of writing a post? Don't worry you can find your unfinished post later in the Drafts section of your profile page.
I have a read-only String attribute that holds some comments as text, that is aggregated during operation of tasks within the workflow. Every line is coded with eol (line.separator) at the end.
When I display the field in the details view (More Attributes Info Page Layout) or in the edit view (Edit Layout) then the contents is correctly rendered (multiple lines of text)
But when I display the attribute in the Task Form in the Task Variables section (visible, read-only, resettable), then the text is rendered to
line 1<BR>line 2<BR>line 3<BR>
I've tried both the default Task Form Templates for 'Native' and 'JSP' which are documented to render to HTML.
Both have the same behaviour.
Where am I wrong? Your help is appreciated!
