We have some libraries with newlines in records, as we had to have a
method of keeping the data from their previous system intact, and this
was the only reasonably effective way. We have a patch (that I sent
upstream, I can't recall if it went in) that formats them with <br /> in
output. I'm not sure if it's strictly legal according to MARC, but it
was necessary.
