A stupid Newbie question

Recommended Posts

I have a form that puts text into a MySql database. The text can contain carrage returns to create paragraphs.

When I echo the text into a text area, all looks OK.

BUT

When I echo the text direct, the line breaks do not work and everything appears in one line.

How do I echo the text so it appears correctly, including line breaks, without placing in in a text area tag???

Example:-
this works
[code]<textarea name="textfield" cols="70" rows="12"><?php echo $row_Recordset1['Description']; ?></textarea>[/code]

this don't work
[code]<?php echo $row_Recordset1['Description']; ?>[/code]

Thanks in advance
