I am creating a content management page that uses a textarea box to enter a
chunk of text which then is sent into the database into a text-type field.

I am finding that when the data is retrieved to be shown in the browser that
the line feeds are lost.  I don't want users to have to know HTML to put
tags in themselves.  What's the best way to handle this?

Can I read from the database and insert br's and p's to be put into the
displayed HTML?  Or, instead, is there a way to put the br's and p's
immediately into the database when the record is inserted?  How can I do
this?  How would the string be manipulated?

Thanks for your help,
