      Description

      In the marking guide, no form of formatting is possible in the instructions for markers/students edit boxes. Intuitively you would probably expect new lines entered in the edit box to be respected but they are not. The whole thing is flattened. If there is any complexity to the instructions this can make them very hard to read.

      I expect that all the output is missing is some <pre> tags.
