Dear Forum,

I cannot find a way to get notes made in a Foxpro memo to display correctly in HTML with line breaks as in the original.

Example:


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the Foxpro memo field:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bestellung 13.5.88. Rückantw. 11/88. Rückantw. 1/89. Rückantw. 3/89 (Anfr.). Rückantw. 10/90. St.Lt Rf rec. & Req.lists sent SP & Lt. JW 05.96

St.lt.lists sent 05.97 VS

E-mail reply to SLC 29.6.97; thanks have rec'd lists. VS

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This will display fine in a <TEXTAREA> within a form, but if I wish to display it as simple output e.g.

<TABLE ALIGN="center" WIDTH="592" CELLSPACING="0" CELLPADDING="2" BORDER="0"><TR>
<TD BGCOLOR="#F5F5F5"><%=memofield%></TD>
</TR></TABLE>

The breaks are ignored and I get:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bestellung 13.5.88. Rückantw. 11/88. Rückantw. 1/89. Rückantw. 3/89 (Anfr.). Rückantw. 10/90. St.Lt Rf rec. & Req.lists sent SP & Lt. JW 05.96. St.lt.lists sent 05.97 VSE-mail reply to SLC 29.6.97; thanks have rec'd lists. VS

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If I use <PRE>, e.g.

<TABLE ALIGN="center" WIDTH="592" CELLSPACING="0" CELLPADDING="2" BORDER="0"><TR>
<TD BGCOLOR="#F5F5F5"><PRE><%=memofield%></PRE></TD>
</TR></TABLE>

the lines shoot off for miles to the right and I am unable to get them to wrap.

Well, I hope you understand!

Any help much appreciated.

Best wishes to all forum users.
