Moving along, I'm now working on the "yellowpages" part of using the
UserApp here. We have some things vaugely like departments (some are
actually departments, some are other sorts of organizations) for which I
need to be able to search and display a large pre-formatted text blob.

I defined an Organizations entity in the DAL, and can search for and
display things with this, but I haven't found a way to handle these
pre-formatted text blobs. Stored in the "niuDepartmentText" attribute on
the object, I can get them ok, but I can't get displaying them to work.

If I put the attribute in the list of attributes to display, it comes
up, but the formatting is all wrong because it's just being seen as a
bunch of text and being word-wrapped.

If I put it in the HTML Layout, nothing shows up. I'm still trying to
figure this out. HTML Layout for User entities works fine, but I can't
seem to get the HTML Layout for Organizations to show anything at all.

As a sample of the kind of thing I'm trying to do:

The "text" part of that is what I'm storing in niuDepartmentText.
