I have a textarea in which a user inputs data. It it put in a text column in a database. When I retrieve the data, however, I can't get any of the line break (returns) in the data to show. If I wrap it in <pre></pre>, the line breaks are there, but it also has a weird padding and font. And the data in the database, when viewed through phpmyadmin, has all the appropriate line breaks.
Any ideas on how I can get the line breaks without <pre></pre>?
