What you have to remember is that ultimately you are generating html with
browser is concerned, that's just empty whitespace. One way to test it (I
think) would be to use <pre> and </pre> instead of your <font> tags in
combination with your \n's. it may work, but I don't know since I didn't
try it and don't have time before work :)
If using pre works, then I would suggest creating a style block and
adjusting the pre properties with CSS. I can help with that this evening
after work if it works for you.
For what it's worth, this sort of knowledge is the sort of thing that
using Dreamweaver of Front Page doesn't teach.
