You actually need (it's in the manual) nl2br for this.
It converts newline (nl) to (2) break (br) so this text (\n indicates a newline character or 'enter' as you've called it)
This\n is\n a\n test\n
This<br />\n is<br />\n a<br />\n test<br />\n
Make sure you strip those <br /> if you intend to put the content back in to a database though, or you'll double up the line count.

I know of the
$variable = mysql_real_escape_string($variable);
It works just nicely to allow some of the wild cards to be saved to a mySQL table.
Is there something like this for HTML that when you retrieve from a variable in the table an ENTER would be converted to <P>
I am mainly talking about when the variable is defined as "longtext" and you are expecting the user to write a few sentences or where they may s/he may press ENTER to start a new line.
