I have a form where the users use TinyMCE to fill out some information, and that form is then POSTed, and stored in a database.
The problem appears to be that mysqli::real_escape_string is turning carriage return line feeds into escaped versions of themselves, and storing them. Well... that is part of the design. But when I re-read the database, and run stripslashes() on the data as it is read from the DB, I get output like this:

     Here si some good HTML code
     rn
     But you can see
     rn
     that there are annoying
     rn
     "rn" on blank lines between everything.

How can I store HTML in the DB, and retrieve it without having this \r\n problem?
