i discovered that if i just enter "test test test" into a basic tinymce textarea, it doesnt store any html in the db. only when i hit enter at the end of a line does it wrap <p> around both sentences. and, if i just paste a block of text in to tinymce (no linebreaks), it doesnt add html markup either

so i have to tell client to hit enter at the end of any sentence, or the db just returns text with no html markup. i cant use the code below either cause what if they enter two lines? in that case there will be two <p>'s wrapped around the text?

Code:
<p><? echo row['text'];?></p>
anyone know how to get around this?
