textarea not allowing linebreaks

No you don't. What a bloat just for a line break.

What you're looking for is the native php function nl2br($myTextAreaText). It stands for New Line 2 BReak, it basically replaces any line break with the html code <br/>

Use the above function when echo'ing out your data onto your view and you'll see line breaks where you expect them.
However, if you are "editing" your data inside a textarea don't use this function or you'll see html <br/> inside your textarea, which you don't want!
