Hi,

I am storing some text in a model that is separated by new lines, and
I wanted to offer some default text in case the records in the model
do not exist...  So I tried to emulate it by doing:

en:
  foo:
    item1\r\n
    item2\r\n
    item3\r\n

..  However, when I retrieve this, it shows up as item1\\r\\nitem2\\r\
\n

where the "\"s are escaped.......  So in order to split my string by
new lines, I have to do:
text.split(/\r\n|\\r\\n/), which I am not crazy about.

I was wondering if there is a simple way I can just make a list in
yaml so that when I do t(:foo), i will get ["item1", "item2",
"item3"] ?

thanks.

en:
  foo:
    - "item one"
    - "item two"
    - "item three"

I18n.translate(:foo)
 => ["item one", "item two", "item three"]

Did you try the YAML docs or a quick search? Pretty sure it's
supported and shouldn't be hard to find.
