Record to RTF linefeed problem

Hi, looks like a classic problem, but can’t find a real solution
anywhere.
Im using the Ruby rtf plugin. I get a record from the DB with in there
a large textfield, WITH linefeeds. (I can see them in de record in
phpadmin.)
when I export my recordfield to rtf, all the linefeeds/HR/CR 's are
gone.

I’ve tried all sorts of variantions of this

string = @visit.besproken
new_string = string.gsub(/\n/,’\par’)
document.paragraph << “#{new_string}”

But nothing really works. Is there a sort of standard way of doing
this? I’ve been going through all my RoR-books, and searching the
forum, but it stays out of reach.

Many thanks for any suggestion. This forum rocks.
