support for line feed in <echo>

           Summary: support for line feed in <echo>
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: swi@us.ibm.com


When I issue an <echo> command repeatedly to a file (ie: <echo file="my.log" 
append="true">My message text</echo>) it does not emit a line feed so all the 
lines appear as one big long line mushed together... to get a line feed to emit 
I have to place the </echo> on the next line WITH NO INDENTATION... This messes 
up my XML formatting... I can find no way to emit a line feed without screwing 
up my XML formatting... It would be nice to have a &lf; escape char (like &gt; 
and &lt;) or even an option on echo (ie: lf="true") which would force a line 
feed to be emitted in a consistent fashion...  If there is a way to do this 
already, please place it in the frequently asked questions forum on your site...
