i am making a message board, similar to the one you are all now using. one thing though - when a user enters the message into the form field, i write it to the db, and store it in a &#039memo&#039 field. When the board reads this field at a later date, all the paragraphs are removed, and it ends up as one long line of text. <BR><BR>apart from telling users to use the &#060;p&#062; tag, how can i store the structure of their message?<BR><BR>I thankyou all in advance for your help.
