and use either the <pre> tag or the nlbr() function depending upon
what you want to do with the output. Both solutions [1 and 2] provide
different ways to handle data. Number  simply creates another
problem you, or someone else, will have to deal with later on.
Actually, after reading the other posts with respect to what he's trying
to do, I would use nl2br() unless I specifically needed <pre></pre>.
That would be my first choice as well. However, one can style a <pre>
tag whereas it's very difficult (if not impossible) to style what
goes in between <br /> tags.
Also, one can generate validation errors using "<br />" because there
are three different varieties of the tag, namely "<br>", "<br />",
and "<br/>" -- all of which can be used in different settings. I
don't remember which doctypes go with which version (xhtml requires
/>), but I've run into that problem before.
