[Owasp-antisamy] getCleanHTML remove the line breaks

Hi All,

I am trying to figure out how I can prevent AntiSamy (1.3) to remove the 
line break from the input characters.  I saw from the old mail in the 
mailing list someone has the same problem; but unfortunately I don't see 
any reply to that.
searching in google also doesn't produce much information at all.

FYI, I also set the following directive to try without success:
<directive name="preserveComments" value="true" />
<directive name="preserveSpace" value="true"/>

Can anyone help me how to prevent that from happening?  We have 
requirement to preserve the line break.  appreciate the help.


Below are the snippet from the old email:

String testData = "Hi,\r\n\r\nTesting the HTML tag. Only content Can you
filter me? should be saved.\r\n\r\n<html>Can you filter me?</html>";

System.*out*.println("Output: \n" + cr.getCleanHTML());



Hi, Testing the HTML tag. Only content Can you filter me? should be saved.
Can you filter me?

The multiline formatting is lost in cleaned output. Is this a problem or we
have alternative way to configure formatting.
