Q:  Within my XML, I have some text that contains multiple line breaks that I wish to maintain in my output.  Is it possible to have these line breaks reflected in my output, and if so, how do I implement this in the Designer?

A:  Yes this is achievable in the TEXT view of the XF Designer, and the correct method is to use the attribute (linefeed-treatment="preserve") on the parent fo:block of where your field is inserted.  For example, if I have the following XML:

<auto>
<car color="red">
This 
car
is 
red
</car>
</auto>

I would want to use the following code in my template:

<fo:block linefeed-treatment="preserve">
<xfd:field xpath="/auto/car"/>
</fo:block>
