Hi Gang,

I searched the archives (Honest I did) but to no avail...

I need to format text area fields so that it looks like what the user typed
in when they preview and for later display when retrieved from a db.

I have this snippet of perl stuff but I must have left out some stuff when I
wrote it down because it dont do nut'n...
I assume it should be looking for 2 new lines and replacing them with a <P>
and with a <BR> for a single new line.
But nothing happens

It should take the text in PARA2 and format it but...nothing changes...can
some good samaritan point me in the right direction
