    Unclear, ambiguous, lacking a clear antecedent to both instances of "it." Downvoted for that very serious shortcoming.

    You're wrapping the whole string (several paragraphs) into a single HTML paragraph tag. The grandparent was suggesting that you parse the string for paragraphs and manually insert the necessary paragraph tags.

    Do look at the HTML source your program generates and check that everything is there. You may also want to try white-space: pre; if you want a boring CSS solution (but nothing compares to actually understanding the problem!)
