    New problem I have a textarea in a form that a user fills in and then stores the text in mysql as medimum blob and when the users web page is called by anyone the data from the db is inserted in to the page content via <?php echo $var ?> .
    The problem is the data dose not wrap and causes the cell to push over the width set for the td tag and exstends the table to the right.The other cells in the table are normal. any ideas folks.

    Thanks

    Why does the data not wrap? Is it one long non-breaking string? Does it use the <nobr> tag?
