I'm having some trouble storing html into a MySQL table, it is typed into a
html 'textarea'.
actually, i can't even get basic text to be stored from the textarea.

the mysql_query() works fine with standard text input fields alone.
i try and insert the textarea data in the same way as i do the text fields,
but it doesn't work.

i am trying to store the textarea data (html code typed into the textarea by
a user) into a longtext SQL field atm. is that correct? i've heard a lot
about storing non-standard data into blobs of recent...

Is it because the textarea spans multiple lines and contains quote marks
(amongst other characters that PHP or MySQL might not like...)?

...Would retrieving the data from the table be any different once i've got
it in there?
maybe i'd need to use mysql_fetch_array($result) instead of
mysql_fetch_row($result) to get all of the data across?

thanks guys,
