Product views do not accept formatting

Product views do not accept formatting

When I input several paragraphs of text in the long description area for products, the program appears to add <p>text</p> paragraph tags in all the appropriate places, but when you view the results, there is no line "double-spacing" between the paragraphs the way you normally see when paragraph tags are used. This makes for one big, unwieldy block of text.

In order to get the extra space between lines (in the fashion you see in this post), I have to go into the SOURCE view and manually add a <br> between the paragraphs. When I leave the SOURCE view, my screen shows double-double-spaces, but when I view the entry live, the proper line spacing is there.

I want my customer to be able to add products to his shopping cart, and he won't be able to do that properly because he doesn't know html and would have no idea how to fix this manually in SOURCE view.

Have you had problems with formatting reported before?
