I have a CGI-RPGIV web site.  I run all incoming parms through an #escape()
routine to convert special codes (like %2F for '/') to their actual
characters.  I have added a <textarea> to one of my screens and for the
first time I have to deal with forced line breaks (enter).  The code comes
in as '%0D%0A'.  I tried converting this to '/n' thinking that the
JavaScript that re-populates the form later would read that and break, but
instead it actually shows the '/n' as part of the text.

My conclusion is that I need a simple #unescape() routine, but what do I
convert this to so that the browser will understand this is a line break?

Many thanks,
