Hi Experts:
I have a form where I am inputting several fields and using the CKEditor for formatting.  The input fields operate correctly (allowing me to input formatting to the text field), however, when I POST the form, I lose the formatting (it does not show up when I echo the POST value).  Further, when I store the information in my MYSQL database, the words are there, but not the formatting.  I've attached the form page as well as the page POSTed to.  Any help would be greatly appreaciated!CreateCustomProposal-NEO-2012.phpCreateCustomProposal-NEO-2012-1.php

The problem is you are using php to strip out html with this bit of code

$Item1=strip_tags(trim($_POST['Item1']));

TL;DR.  But maybe all of the strip_tags() statements has something to do with it.  Can you please help us by creating the SSCCE to illustrate the problem in a way that does not require analysis of hundreds of lines of code?
