The data is probably being stored in the database in escaped format, you will need to unescape it first

i dont know regarding escaped format or unescaped format. User will enter the data through FCKEditor. And then data will save into MySql database as BLOB. So what can i do now ???

Which component are you using to display this text data in flex?

If it's a TextBox are you setting the htmlText property to the html string above, or the text property?

Not all html tags are supported in flex, tags like table won't work for instance, it's mainly the formatting tags that work.

If you are using the htmlText property, put a breakpoint in the code and have a look what the text data looks like, if it's filled with ampersands & then you have to unescape the data in php before sending it to flex
