if the returnns are "\n" you only need nl2br("this \n test \n")... or
preg_replace("/((\r|\n)|(\r\n|\n\r))/", "<br />", "this \r\n test \r\n")...
good luck...

> I have a MySQL database of text stories in longtext MySQL fields. These
stories have simple returns (\r) in them and no other formatting. I need to
use these stories both for web and print production, so I need to be able to
get the text out of MySQL via PHP and have those returns change to <P> tags.
But I also need to keep those extra <P> tags out of the database file so the
text can be exported and poured into a layout program.

maybe I'm missing something. Do I have to use regular expressions in PHP as
the text is pulled from the database?
