I created an application for a client. It's a modification of the TWiki FAQ app, using a form and a template.

The template topic content is:


This is the template used by the FAQ application. 

%RED% Use caution in modifying this template. The FAQ application "knows" how it is structured". %ENDCOLOR%


---+ %WEB% FAQ
---+++++ Back to: %URLPARAM{"topicparent"}%

<!-- The FAQ question is automatically filled by the value in the form, below. Do not edit. -->
---++ FAQ: %FORMFIELD{"FAQuestion"}%

---++ Answer:


The app calls the template via a form:

<input type="hidden" name="topic" value="FAQTopicAUTOINC0000" />
<input type="hidden" name="templatetopic" value="%TOPIC%Template" />

When the user tested from IE on Windows Vista, this is what he saw after the template was copied and presented for editing:

It looks as if "something" has removed all of the linefeeds from the template.
