Ok...here's the thing. I'm trying to build a database where I can input articles to be served up later. The most important field is the body of the article. I made this a text (instead of blob) field, but when I cut the article from, say, MS Word, and paste it into the field in the form (I built a web form with PHP for this purpose), the info in the field is all screwy when I look at it through Telnet, or exported text. There are no paragraph breaks, there's some gremlins, etc. Any advice would be great. Thanks for listening.

You can't expect a word doc to save as text. There are all sorts of 'hidden' formatting characters in there that don't mean squat in HTML. Use Word's save as HTML feature. Then import that to your DB
