There are actually two questions here - I have combined the code into one

Question 1 : how to get the newline functioning ....? even print_r() output
is not 'newlined' as it should be. Also note the \n is missing between the "
" in the output text of the second test!

Are you outputting to browser or to command line? Browsers have a
habit of ignoring whitespaces, reducing them to one whitespace
character regardless of their type or how many.


Thanks Peter, - output is to browser, I develop in Notepad++ and Firefox, and confirm in IE8. But this stuff used to work - I have been working with PHP for about two years (not pro) and am used to formatting my output for legibility - especially echoing or var_dumping variables when still testing the code. So the failure is recent and I just can't figure what changed.
