How to preserve input formatting of text which is saved to db ?

How can you preserve input formatting of text which is submitted through an input box which spans several lines. By formatting, I mean break lines, tab , blank line etc... especially, if this input is saved to a database and then later retrived for viewing. Too many times, you submit a text which is nicely formatted, but when you view it again, it has lost all of its formatting and has become a single paragraph text which is incomprehensible.
