Hello in the mailinglist

I asked about this some days ago in a threaded mail, but I would like to 
redefine my question as to have I have tested.

If I try this (shorted down):

function loadup() {
        document.getElementById("indhold").value = "lala \n  \x00  \x01

}
</script>
 
    <vbox>
        <vbox id="Letter">
            <description id="indhold" 
style="padding-left:2em;white-space: pre;"></description>
        </vbox>
 
    </vbox>
</dialog>


It displays absolutely no linebreaks at all, but just a looooong list of 
letters and other "strange" (but known) characters. However if I put the 
(variable) "text" from the script into the <description></description> 
then at least I see some of the linebreaks I would have expected from my 
example.

So, do we have a bug in the xul interface handling of javascripts?
Or how do I get what I want?
