    Carriage return to </ br>

    I'm just tinkering about with something in ASP and was wondering if there was a simple way to do this:

    A user types into a text box a couple of paragraphs (which are separated by some carriage returns). The user then submits it to a database but the carriage returns are gone.

    I need a way to tell it for each carriage return put a <br /> in place.

    I'm sure there is a simple solution and someone will sort me out

    Presumably you're going to present it back in HTML at some point; you could also store it literally and use <pre></pre> around it.
