I would think just encoding the linebreaks would be the best approach.  
Even what it does today, using <br/><br/> to represent the new lines, 
works perfectly fine - anything intelligent enough to parse HTML can 
insert those line breaks when read, but the data itself remains on a 
single line in the CSV.

The problem seems to be that that approach is not consistently applied, 
for whatever reason.  The vast majority of my items export correctly, 
but for whatever reason Tellico seems to render the <br/>'s as actual 
newlines on a handful of them.  I can't find a pattern that might 
explain it.

If it'd be helpful for troubleshooting, I can share a copy of my 
collection so you can easily replicate.
