It is not clear if all four words are one string separated by line breaks, or if they are stored separately.
If you have one long string, with linebreaks, use: $ anagram = preg_replace("/^(.)/mi", "<br/><b>$1</b>", $ anagram); Simcha Younger p.s. I think you meant an acronym. -----Original Message----- From: Ron Piggott [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Monday, September 01, 2008 2:09 AM To: PHP DB Subject: [PHP-DB] Adding <br>'s I have the following saved in one column of a mySQL table: Like Overcome Vested Embrace It is an anagram for the word Love I am querying the table to display the results. I am needing help with the formatting part of this. I have this line of code: $anagram=mysql_result($anagram_result,$i,"anagram"); I need help adding <br>'s so each word will be on a new line. Within the table column each word is on a separate line. It would also be really cool if the first letter was in bold (ie <b>X</b> ) echo stripslashes($anagram) Thanks, Ron -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php No virus found in this incoming message.
