    Line breaks

    Level 7
      Is there a better code practive for CF to both include and show line breaks
      in text areas.

      I have many sites that have text areas inwhich users use the enter key to
      seperate their paragraphs.

      When I go to show them on a page, it all gets pushed together into one long
      paragraph.

      On some sites I use MySQL and on others I use MS SQL although I have
      accomplished this in Classic ASP (with help from an extension) using both so
      I don't think it is a DB issue.

      The goal is to be able to display parapgraphs as the user has entered them

      I have tried <code></code> and <pre></pre> and those did not quite work.

      Thanks for any help.

      Example / Goal:

      I would like to have a paragraph like this.

      And this.

      Rather than:
      I would like to have a paragraph like this. And this.
