I have a form with a textarea that is used to submit text to a access database. When I retrieve this information on another page all or some of the formatting of the original text disappears. I have tried setting the textarea's wrap to virtual and physical. I have tried using the <PRE> tag. Nothing seems to work. The <PRE> tag will pick up hard returns but not the line breaks from the physical form. I need something that is going to casue there to be line breaks and have formatting retained whether the user types the input in or pastes it in. Any help appreciated.
