I am using a text area to send some information, but it won't hold the returns.

Example:
--------------------
Input:
hi
my
name
is

Output:
hi my name is
--------------------

How can I get it to keep the returns?

If you are viewing the output as HTML, then you can use the <PRE> tags around it:

<PRE>
hi
my
name
is
</pre>

This will keep the returns when viewed by in a browser.
