Long and Short Dataset Descriptions are not considering line breaks

Description

** CHANGE IN REQUIREMENTS, SEE COMMENT BELOW **

DTI is giving us line breaks (/n/n) within long and short descriptions in their metadata API - (https://www.transparency.treasury.gov/services/dtg/metadata/) but looks like we are ignoring it. We need to display descriptions with line breaks.

Developers: we now have a utility in our code base for handling this. This ticket will be only to apply this utility to the two flavors of descriptions noted here.

Ex. Avg Interest rate dataset (Long Desc)

DTI Metadata link - "The Average Interest Rates .......\n\n*This is a useful dataset for investors and bond holders to compare how interest rates on Treasury Securities have changed throughout the years.\n\n*This dataset is published monthly and is available from calendar year 2001 to the present."
