How can I keep text formatted after it has been inserted into the DB?

Espen Holje, Chris N,


If I understand your question, you mean "how to correcly display text 
formatted with HTML-tags from a database"?
If so, you can just load the HTML-code from your db and print it to a 
form with a textarea box with the command:
htmlspecialchars($textblob);
This function will convert all special HTML characters.
