    Default BR's in a textarea?

    Hi,

    I have a form with a textarea. When I try to get the content using e.g.
    $_POST["textfieldname"] the BR's are stripped out? How could this be fixed?

    Greetz,

    <?php
    $fixed = nl2br($_POST["textfieldname"]);
    ?>

    Check the manual: [url]http://www.php.net/nl2br[/url]
    [for some reason this URL is not working for me right now]

    I have a spam filter working.
    To mail me include "urkxvq" (with or without the quotes)
    in the subject line, or your mail will be ruthlessly discarded.
