hi
I have php form. one of my textarea gets data with html tags from database,
so I would like to remove those html tags like <br />, therefore is there
anyway that i can remove those tags in the data and then the data can appear
as text in the textarea.



Mohamed,


PHP has a really rich set of string processing functions. Have a look at:

        strip_tags(), see http://ca3.php.net/manual/en/function.strip-tags.php

You may also want to look at:

        htmlentities()
        stripslashes()
        addslashes()

It all depends, of course, on what you want to do with the content.

The <br /> - you retrieving XML?
