      does $value have the whole entry in it? try this:

      $value =~ s/\n/<br>\n/gs;

      from the perlre manpage:

      s Treat string as single line. That is, change "." to
      match any character whatsoever, even a newline, which
      normally it would not match.

      Hope that helps,
