Print Task & Dynamic Text

I have set up a map template for one of my maps that works really well. One issue i'm trying to resolve is my map runs a tool that generates some simple statistics and displays them as a table in the TOC. I'd like those values to get passed into the print template and I'm not sure how to do that. I know there's the authorText, copyrightText and titleText values that I can populate and pass across and then use dynamic text box's and those do work but the issue I have is I can't seem to get a long string to format on the print template side so that it displays as follows...

Number of projects: 4
Total Ac Upland: 56
Total Ac Wetland: 73
Secured Ac: 2
Influence Ac: 6
Total $: 1234


I can pass across a string like "Number of projects: 4,Total Ac: 56,Total $: 1234" but how do format the dynamic text to add a line return at each "," ?

Failing that can I pass over other dynamic text like <dyn type="user"/> ?
