In my case, I had a newline-delimited file of field@@data field@@data field@@data and when the data had an embedded newline like comment@@this is a long comment field@@data then it messed things up. Yeah, I learned about the possibility of using XML along the way, and I've already thought about serialize and base64 (which I *do* use inside the code, though not out in the file) for simple protections, but a requirement was that the text file also be readable and editable by people -- and, besides, I'm just extending this code rather than writing it :-) % newlines? It should be stored in the database (if you're doing so) with % the newlines and not the HTML breaks. You only use the nl2br() to % output it on a web page, so who cares if the new lines are still there? For output, it doesn't matter, as you say.
