You can use the trim command and pass it everything that should be trimmed via the second parameter.

Trim was not exactly the solution. I found strip_tags do it great.


<?php echo strip_tags($row_rsPage['body_pnas_en'], '<p><a><br><li><strong>'); ?>

You're on firm ground with strip_tags() but please read the warnings on the man page.  See also this note:
