how br should help you in format? Do you mean some layout roblem or the format of date displayed in outputTExt? if the second problem is your check f:convert tags.
Yes, I mean a general layout problem after calculation. I played around with it and solved the problem by adding a datalist element to the page.
However I still do have a general question:
I have added a new element to the same page and I observe it with the a4j:support tag. I switched the event to "onkeyup", so each time the user puts in a key, it validates the field. What I don't understand is, why does it update all the other ajax fields on my page every time I type something in? Is it because of the ajaxRendered="true"?
yes. this special attirbute tells that outuput panel should be updated on any ajax request
