    MySQL - Loss of Formatting

      I have set up a PHP/MySQL database to display articles on a web page. I use the MySQL column text type TEXT for these articles.

      The articles have carriage returns (new paragraph), paragraph indentations and some articles use quotation punctuation.

      The articles can be INSERTed OK into the database but when displayed on the web page all formatting is removed - it becomes one long string without even carriages returns.

      Is there anyway to retain the formatting capability of the original article?
