You could look into the nl2br() function, which converts \n -style newlines
(entered in  <TEXTAREA>s) into HTML <br>s.

Subject: RE: [PHP] Pulling information out of a MySQL database

I did have one last aesthetic question ... I have one field set as TEXT 
which holds descriptions of the events.  When the information was entered 
into this field, in many cases, spaces between lines were entered ... 
however, when I pull the info from the database onto the webpage ... all my 
line formatting is erased and its just one continuous line of text.  Is 
there a way to maintain my line formatting with spaces?
