Formatting and displaying text from database

Recommended Posts

Ok this is an easy one but i just cant remember who to do it ... lol

now how do i get carriage returns to display in html after the data is retrieved from the database?

\\\\\\\\\\\ example of data ////////////////////

this is
a listing in
a directory

/////////////////////////////////////////////////

if the user edits this info - wrap "physical" is used in the textarea to format the carriage returns ... easy

but....

what do i need to do to get the same format when displaying the info within the ditectory?

currently it displays the string on 1 line eg

this is a listing in a directory


thanks in advance
