Striping String

Last Modified: 2011-09-20
Hi Experts !

Here is one of the field from the database :
                    <td>4 Speed Automatic with Overdrive</td>
                    <th>Drive Type</th>
                    <td>4 wheel drive - rear</td>
                    <th>Fuel Type</th>
The following :
$row['cont'] = strip_tags($row['cont']);
$row['cont'] = str_replace('\n',' ',$row['cont']);
$row['cont'] = str_replace('\r',' ',$row['cont']);
$row['cont'] = trim($row['cont']);

seems to generates the same string...without the tags (but the spaces, lines...) while I would like the string to be ONE line, so that any closing tag will become a space to separate the content nicely.
All I have succeeded so far is to have my csv file looking like ^%$^$@#@.
