Paragraph line alignment XML

I have an XML file like this:

<resources>
<string name="app_name">My Application</string>

<string name="mytext">Some long line\n
Some long line\n
Some long line\n
Some long line\n
</string>

</resources>


In which I have some long lines of text I want to display but the XML produces the following output on screen:

enter image description here

Why are the rest of the lines after first not aligned with first line?

Answer

The problem can be solved by preceding \n. Something like this:

<resources>
<string name="app_name">MyProj</string>
<string name="mytext">Some long line
    \nSome long line
    \nSome long line
    \nSome long line
</string>

I think the trailing \n were causing the problem.
