I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

you can write a php function to remove all the line breaks from a string.. then register this function as a smarty output filter... now smarty will pass all the template outputs through this particular function before sending it to end user.....  bingo.... you get what you need.... see the attached code..
function filterCarriageReturn($tpl_output, &$smarty)
    $tpl_output = str_replace(chr(10), " ", $tpl_output);     //remove carriage returns
	$tpl_output = str_replace(chr(13)," ", $tpl_output);
    return $tpl_output;

// register the outputfilter
