    Another time it would be a good idea to post some more details about your problem. Since it may be that this is a homework I won't give an exact answer but rather give some guidance.

    I would guess that you are trying to get some output on an HTML page. HTML is not supposed to care about newlines or white spaces when presenting its output so you have to find out how to do a newline in HTML and insert ít into the code. A good way to find ouy how HTML is written is to look at the source of any web page. Bote IE and Firefox has "view source" options in the menu. Nowadays not many developers put presentation logic like HTML tags in the JAva code but uses a presentation framework based on JSP to accomplish HTML output.

    Good luck.
