Thanks for the replies! I agree that I'll need to store the bbCode in the DB, for later editing. (I obviously hadn't thought that through.) I may or may not store the HTML as well, as in most cases I don't think there will be a lot of text and therefore the performance hit should be minimal. But it's a good strategy to keep in mind. Thanks again. - John -- This message may contain information which is private, privileged or confidential and is intended solely for the use of the individual or entity named in the message.
