HTML <Href Link inside a form (HTML text box) - Coldfusion Database Access

Hello, I am using a standard HTML Form to gather information from users and one of the elements within the form is a text box that users will paste links into, along with their plain text. The link could be anywhere within the text box with text before and after it, etc. I take the text and put in into an access db memo field.

    Default HTML <Href Link inside a form (HTML text box)

    Hello, I am using a standard HTML Form to gather information from users and
    one of the elements within the form is a text box that users will paste links
    into, along with their plain text. The link could be anywhere within the text
    box with text before and after it, etc. I take the text and put in into an
    access db memo field. When I retreive the text, the text is truncated after
    the '<' . Do I need to escape the <Href before I store the full text ?? I am
    looking for a way to maintain the links as links once I query and reDisplay the
    memo field content. I would rather not p and test each chr in the field
    before I right it to the db. Also, I don't have the option of adding an
    additional URL field to the form. I see many examples on the web, including
    CFMX based forums, but don't knmow what solution is used for managing
    substrings within plain text. atm I am playing around with 'replace', but there
    is probably a simpler and better way.

    You could replace < and > with < and > respectively before you send the text to the database.
