I've seen several answers to this question, but one thing always seems to be missing: where to put the code that is mentioned. I'm trying to do this:<BR><BR>I've got a textarea that is free form typing. when the form is submitted, it writes that textarea to a "memo" type field in an access database. when i then display that record on in html, it's not retaining the carriage returns.<BR><BR>could someone help out? adding a wrap tag to the textarea has no effect.<BR><BR>thanks!
