store text in db with carriage return or with line breaks?
Posted on 2006-11-07
I'm curious, is it best to store text copy in a db with carriage returns or with break tags?
I've done both. With carriage returns you don't need to process the values before displaying in a text area form field. With break tags you can write it straight to html... I'm guessing break tags take less physical space to store?
Are there good reasons to go one way or the other?
