That was it, or at least sort of. Thank heavens I always test before I post, because I was going to smugly comment that I'm using freebsd *but* I tried switching to \r and noticed that the added <br> moved from one line to the other. So I whipped up $fout = ereg_replace("(\n|\r)+","<br>",$fin) ; and it works -- there must actually be \r\n there -- and I'll work backwards from there (I'll use an expression like the above to robustly handle by-god-anything that comes in!) to get rid of these temp variables. % % Cheers, % Rob.
