Formatting text retrieved from mysql database?

Recommended Posts

I have the following form which allows admins on the site to add news topics. I can retrieve the text from the database and print it where it needs to go, but the problem lies in the formatting of the text for example if a user wanted text to be on 3 lines:

one
two
three

instead the result is one two three. I tried just simply using <pre> but this makes the text exceed the container i have placed it in.

Any suggestions?

Sounds like you're in need of a line break or am I missing something here?

Erm, just thought - when echo'ing the text to the browser try this:
[code]echo nl2br($variable);[/code]
