Formatting field from database

Recommended Posts


I have a script which pulls information from a mySQL database. The field contains descriptions of books. The output is formatted within a <p class="description"> tag. The data in the database has coding within the field which determines quote's so for example:

databasefield = "This is normal text which I would like to format as above. [quote]The database stores quotes in these square brackets[/quote] Normal text again etc etc"

What I would like to do is apply a different style to the text within the square brackets. Whats the best way of achieving this?
