Preserve Line Breaks in variable from <textarea>?


Recommended Posts

I have a form which contains a <textarea> element where people are supposed to type several paragraphs. I then use PHP to save this element's contents to a MySQL database. When I use PHP to display the textarea's contents from the database on another page the line breaks have all been removed. Is there a way I can tell PHP or MySQL to preserve the line breaks so the text is in paragraphs?
