That's right but if the variable is initialised by the form and you want to
write the variable in to your html-document it's better to write this

$content = nl2br(htmlentities(stripslashes($content)));

$content = nl2br($content);

That will convert all newline characters into <br> tags.

hello ... im sorry to bother with a non-db question but i searched for this
and got 0 record :P

its all about the wrappig in textareas:

how can i convert the end of line/ line breaks ['enter' keys] that the user
hits while
filling a textarea so that when i display the record content the text does
break where the user intended ???

ex.:

<textarea>bla blah blah
                 bla blah blah</textarea>

if i echo() this textarea value i will apear in a single line even if the
user pressed enter 2  break the line
