Hi there,

If i store text ie a description in a text field of a mysql database and then display the text on a page it is shown as one big paragraph.

Is there anything I can do to format it so that there are blank lines between paragraphs etc. Do I do this if possible when enterig into the database or after?

Any assistance would be great.

Many THanks,

Please don\'t double-post. You\'ll find my replay in reponse to your other post.
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
