:>in a field but i really dont want them :)
:>if i do a str_replace('\n', '', $text) it seems to remove the linefeed but
:>not the carriage return or something wierd.
$text = ereg_replace ("\n", "", $text);
Seems to work for me, however you could be working on Windows, in which case
you're going to have to take away the \r as well as the \n.
I'm usnig that on a UNIX system though and it works perfectly for me. However
I'm not sure why you want HTML entered into the database.
What would make sense to me would be to format the stuff when extracting out
of the database.
Your entering the HTML in the database, which IMHO is just plain wrong. It
should be entered as "hello" and then when extracted,
$string . "<BR>";
Hope it works either way,
