Are you using <pre> tags? It's probably not you process that causing any
troubles but rather the browser is reformatting the text according to its own
idea of the content.

HTML is more of a content description scheme than a layout scheme, and unless
you explicitly tell browser to leave text they way it comes in with a
<pre>(formatted) tag, lines will be wrapped where convenient for the browser,
the existance but not amount of whitespace will be preserved. If you're trying
to create an image, do it with a graphics package.
