yourString.Replace(Environment.NewLine, "<br>")

Try this.....
becasue when displaying the text in the datalist the browser reads it as
html, try using the Replace(Environment.NewLine, "<br>") when storing the
text in the db to replace each LineBreak with <br> in the database so when
getting the value the browser reades the <br> as tags and replaces them with
a Break line.
